The Queen’s Transplant Center will continue to do transplants as long as weather conditions allow.

The UNOS Patients Services can be reached by their toll-free telephone number 1-888-894-6361 or email  patientservices@unos.org. UNOS website address is https://unos.org/.

Please consult your physician if you have any questions or concerns.  All emergency and trauma services will remain open and available.

While Hurricane Lane has been downgraded to a tropical storm, Queen’s will continue to monitor the adverse weather conditions until it has safely passed our islands. We are partnering with emergency officials statewide and have taken considerable precautions to ensure the safety of patients and staff.
