500th Heart transplant

Since 2000, Tufts MC has performed more heart transplants in New England than any other hospital in the region. In 2016, Tufts MC completed 56 heart transplants, a New England record that ranked among the top-10 heart transplant programs in the country for volume. Learn more about this milestone >
