Upon admission to Hartford Hospital, patients are cared for on CB-3, the Advanced Organ Support and Transplantation Unit.

Conklin Building 3 is a 26-bed nursing unit. The patient population is primarily organ transplant recipients, donors and patients with end-stage organ disease. Our staff is a highly specialized team of nurses, APRNs and PAs.

The nursing orientation is quite extensive involving 8-10 weeks of classroom and clinical time. The orientation covers the spectrum of transplantation from pre-transplant to transplant to post-transplant.

Observing an actual transplant is part of the orientation. The management of North 11 is comprised of a unit director and unit manager who provide clinical leadership and manage resources while ensuring the highest quality patient care.
The Nurse Manager for the Transplanation Unit is Carol L. Ghergurovich, MS, RN, NE-BC.
