Beginning in December 2019, Emory Transplant Center will see transplant patients in Thomasville, Ga. The new clinic joins a network of Emory Transplant Center clinics located throughout the state in Acworth, Athens, Dublin, Emory Midtown, Emory Saint Joseph’s and Savannah.

The Thomasville clinic is located at the outpatient clinic on the first floor of Archbold Memorial Hospital. Patients will be seen for kidney pre-transplant evaluations and kidney post-transplant follow-up visits beginning in December, and liver pre-transplant evaluations beginning in January 2020. The clinic will rotate its services every other month.

“We are fortunate to be able to collaborate with Archbold Memorial Hospital to provide a location for patients in need of kidney and liver transplant evaluations and post-kidney transplant care without making the drive to Atlanta,” says Thomas Pearson, MD, DPhil, executive director of the Emory Transplant Center and Livingston Professor of Surgery in the Division of Transplantation, Department of Surgery at Emory. “We are excited that we can take our services into new communities to better assist patients.”
