Support Groups

With recent concerns surrounding COVID-19 and limiting public gatherings, we are canceling support group meetings until further notice.

UK HealthCare support groups

Heart to Heart is a patient support group for patients and families who have undergone a heart transplant or implantation of an artificial heart or ventricular assist device. Our goal is to provide holistic care for each patient (and caregivers) to meet their physical, emotional and spiritual needs in all phases of their care.

The support group, which meets each month, includes cardiothoracic surgeons, transplant cardiologists, heart transplant coordinators, a chaplain, social worker, dietician and nurses who provide care to these patients every day. For more information, please contact Tammy Halcomb at or visit the Heart to Heart Facebook page.

UK HealthCare Cardiothoracic Transplant / VAD Support Group - contact Donna Dennis at or visit our Facebook page.
