|Why Support The Alfred Hospital|
Performing around 50-60 lung transplants per year, The Alfred’s Lung Transplant Unit is not only the state centre for adult lung transplantation for Victoria, it is among the busiest and most successful centres of its kind in the world. The Alfred is also a centre of excellence for children’s lung transplants offering the first dedicated paediatric lung transplantation program in Australia.
An active research program has developed, in collaboration with the clinical service, which is focused on extending life expectancy and improving quality of life for transplant recipients. It is this research program which The Margaret Pratt Foundation supports.
