TRANSPLANT - Northwell Health announced Monday that it has recruited Lewis Teperman to build a liver transplant program, a move that signifies the health system's expanding interest in organ transplants and new competition among New York City's largest health systems. Teperman comes from NYU Langone Medical Center and NYU School of Medicine. In addition to NYU, liver transplants are performed in New York City at Montefiore, Mount Sinai and New York-Presbyterian, but there were no transplant centers for patients who live on Long Island. Northwell's program, if approved, could conceivably be more convenient for patients in Queens and Brooklyn as well, further eating into the market share of programs at Mount Sinai or New York-Presbyterian. Northwell recently received state approval for a pediatric kidney transplant program, which would compete with similar programs at Mount Sinai and Stony Brook. Read more here:
