The Best Donation is the Gift of Life

When doctors told Richard Thomas he needed a new kidney, his wife Hallie immediately offered to be his living donor. When she wasn't a match, AdventHealth offered the option of a paired living donation that could not only help Richard, but another patient in need, too. Learn how the Thomas family continues to give back after receiving the gift of life from a stranger.

Online Appointments Available for Existing Patients

To continue caring for you safely, we are offering telemedicine (virtual visits) using a computer, tablet or smartphone.


This HIPAA-compliant program allows existing patients to complete appointments with our transplant specialists from the comfort and safety of their own homes.


Plan to have 30 minutes available to complete the online appointment, with some flexibility before and after for getting familiar with the technology or any minor wait times. We encourage you to have a caregiver join you, if possible.


Please call 407-542-2710 to learn more about this program.
