Gift of Life Transplant House
Gift of Life Transplant House was founded in 1984 by kidney transplant patient Ed Pompeian. His vision and mission was to provide Mayo Clinic transplant patients with high quality affordable accommodations in a supportive home-like environment.

Gift of Life provides services for solid organ, bone marrow and stem cell transplant patients and their families. It is a place of compassion, healing and hope for patients of all ages from all over the world. In this supportive environment we help ease the impact of the complex medical, financial, emotional and spiritual burdens families are faced with day to day on their transplant journey.

Gift of Life Transplant House located in Rochester, Minnesota is a not-for-profit independent Hospital Hospitality House and a Member of the Healthcare Hospitality Network (HHN).
