If you have an appointment:

If you have an appointment in the Surgery Clinic, the first thing you need to do is register at Patient Registration on the the Main Floor. When you register, your contact information will be reviewed. It is essential that your contact information is up-to-date. 

What you need for your appointment:

  • Your Transplant Binder (for post-op patients)
  • Updated list of your medications
  • A list of prescriptions that need renewal


Bloodwork is a routine part of patient care and physicians, nurses and other members of the Transplant Team have access to results sent to the Clinic. Someone from the Team will contact you as necessary to adjust drug doses and provide medical care.

It is preferred that transplant patients to have their lab work drawn at Lifelabs because results arrive more reliably and efficiently on our computer system.


We encourage patients to keep track of all their medications, using the Self-Medication Form, which is given before discharge. Patients should bring their up-to-date, completed form to every clinic visit.

Current lists of medications can be obtained from your pharmacist.
