In addition, AGH's adult liver transplant performance posted a one-year survival rate that was the state's best and among the top 25 adult transplant programs in the country out of 139 medical centers.
Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh UPMC also received outstanding marks for both heart and liver transplants by SRTR.
