Heart Exchange Support Group
A supportive network to help in a time of need...The primary purpose of the Heart Exchange is to provide emotional support for transplant patients (Heart, Kidney, Liver, and Lungs) during the difficult wait for a donor organ and to support those who have received transplants at CHI St. Luke's Health–Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Center in Houston, Texas and other centers. The Heart Exchange is open to anyone!

The Heart Exchange exists for the benefit of transplant patients
Members are transplant recipients, assist device recipients, those in need of transplants or devices, their families and friends and the nurses who work with them. Its members are also volunteers...We’ve been where you are. We know what its like to be told, “You need a transplant.”
We know what its like to wait and we know what its like when the wait is over. The life ahead of you can be wonderful. And we would like to share our perspective with you. Just contact us or If you are a patient at CHI St. Luke's Health–Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Center in Houston, Texas, just tell your nurse that you’d like us to visit and we will be there.
