IL-based Advocate Christ Medical Center adding kidney program

Chicago Tribune, December 30, 2009
Oak Lawn, IL-based Advocate Christ Medical Center has added a new kidney transplant program after recently receiving approval from the Illinois Health Facilities and Services Review Board. Advocate Christ Medical Center is partnering with Loyola University Medical Center on the new program so the two can share expertise and donor kidneys if one has a patient awaiting transplant and the other a compatible kidney. Hospital officials said the transplant program will bring an important service to patients and improve their quality of life by consolidating medical care locally.
