Tampa General Hospital is home to the sixth busiest transplant center in the country. Recently, TGH and USF Health were the first in the West Florida Region to successfully perform a combined heart-liver transplant. There's a critical need for organ donors, with107,000 people nationally needing an organ transplant, and 5,000 individuals in Florida.
