Transplant recipients are selected for a transplant based primarily on medical need, compatibility, and location. Patients come from Alaska, Montana, Wyoming, Oregon and Washington. Transplant House is a home-away-from home for patients and their families who need an affordable, extended stay housing option close to hospitals in Seattle to await or recover from a life-saving transplant. 



Our cleaning regiment is second to none. Our checklist of objects to clean reads like a novel. Both our managing directors must sign off on every apartment. It isn't the easiest way to do it. It is the right way to do it.


See our checklist here.


Transplant House is located close to area hospitals that provide transplants, including the University of Washington Medical Centers, Swedish Hospital, Seattle Children's Hospital, Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, Virginia Mason and the Veterans Administration.
