Tulane Abdominal Transplant Unit

The Tulane Abdominal Transplant Unit (TATU), located on the 7th floor of Tulane Medical Center, consists of 18 beds—all, private rooms with a private bath and shower. The unit can accommodate patients needing intensive care as well as those who are less acutely ill. Therefore, our patients do not have to move throughout the hospital during their recovery; transplant patients will stay on the TATU throughout their hospitalization.

The TATU caters to all transplant patients:  kidney, liver, pancreas, as well as readmission for any transplant patient with either transplant or non-transplant-related medical issues.

The TATU nurses are specially trained, educated, and oriented to the particular needs of the transplant population. They undergo an intensive educational program dedicated to the care of the transplant patient. There is also a nurse practitioner on the TATU who collaborates with the transplant physicians to provide the best care possible for every transplant patient.
