55 List of waiting times at some US lung transplant centers

Waiting time estimates were given by a center employee on April 1995.
These are unofficial numbers, and may have changed. Waiting time should
not be the sole criteria for choosing a transplant center. A complete
list of lung transplant centers is available from UNOS:

(from Joel Newman <NewmanJD@gwwpm1.unos.org>)
Please specify the programs for whom you want data and give us a
snail-mail address (there is a user's guide that accompanies the data,
and it's almost always too much to fax). The best number to call for
more info is the Communications Department at 804-330-8561. You can also
fax requests to us at 804-330-8507, or e-mail me and I'll pass it on.
Please try to allow a week or so for us to process and mail the info --
we're getting a lot of requests lately.
