13. Jobs Liver Transplant Confirmed By Methodist
- Wednesday, June 24, 2009
Methodist Healthcare officials confirmed Tuesday evening that Apple Inc. founder Steve Jobs was indeed in Memphis for a liver transplant sometime recently. The statement, posted on the Methodist website, does not say when the surgery was performed.
There were rumors in April that Jobs was in Memphis. The speculation moved into high gear this past weekend when The Wall Street Journal reported Jobs had a liver transplant at a hospital somewhere in Tennessee.
Here is the statement from Methodist Healthcare in its entirety:
James D. Eason, M.D., program director at Methodist University Hospital Transplant Institute and chief of transplantation confirmed today, with the patient's permission, that Steve Jobs received a liver transplant at Methodist University Hospital Transplant Institute in partnership with the University of Tennessee in Memphis.
Mr. Jobs underwent a complete transplant evaluation and was listed for transplantation for an approved indication in accordance with the Transplant Institute policies and United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) policies.
He received a liver transplant because he was the patient with the highest MELD score (Model for End-Stage Liver Disease) of his blood type and, therefore, the sickest patient on the waiting list at the time a donor organ became available. Mr. Jobs is now recovering well and has an excellent prognosis.
The Methodist University Hospital Transplant Institute performed 120 liver transplants in 2008 making it one of the ten largest liver transplant centers in the United States. We provide transplants to patients regardless of race, sex, age, financial status, or place of residence. Our one year patient and graft survival rates are among the best in the nation and were a dominant reason in Mr. Jobs’s choice of transplant centers. We respect and protect every patient's private health information and cannot reveal any further information on the specifics of Mr. Jobs's case."
The Daily News reported Tuesday that at about the time the first rumors of Jobs' presence in Memphis began to surface the state of Tennessee sold the Midtown house that was once the residence of the chancellor of the University of Tennessee Health Science Center to a company called LCHG LLC in a quit claim deal for $850,000. UTHSC paid $1.3 million for the house at 36 Morningside Cove several years ago. LCHG LLC was created about a week before the quit claim transaction and lists the same address as the Burch, Porter & Johnson law firm. ...
