Hi. I am wondering how many people decided to move to be near Mayo permanently for all follow up care after transplant? Thanks!

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Transplants Support Group.


coming to the Mayo in Jacksonville from St Louis, Mo and looking to find the best accomadations for 5 days. It seems to be very expensive. Any suggestions?

@dawnm2, I want to welcome you to Mayo Connect. Since you have posted your lodging question in the Transplant Group, Am I correct to assume that you will be there for a transplant related appointment? If so, you might be interested to know that Mayo Clinic in Florida has an on-campus hospitality house. It is the Gabriel House of Care. This house is dedicated to providing affordable, temporary lodging in a "community of healing" for adult organ transplant and cancer patients and their caregivers.
There are no reservations, but your name is placed on a waiting list and you will be called closer to your appointment date.

For more information, call 904-821-8995 or visit online.

I am a liver and kidney transplant recipient. I got my transplant at Mayo Rochester. We stayed at the Gift of Life Transplant hospitality house in Rochester in 2009 for 12 weeks.
