Papworth Cardiothoracic ICU
Papworth Hospital Cardiothoracic ICU is a world renowned cardiothoracic critical care unit in Papworth Hospital, Cambridgeshire. Our expertise lies in transplant, ECMO, cardiac mechanical support, and thoracic critical care.
In 2018, Papworth Hospital will move to a brand new, state-of-the-art hospital on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus. In the last 100 years, Papworth has built an incredible reputation as one of the leading cardiothoracic hospital’s in Europe. We are famous for pioneering a series of “firsts” in heart and lung medicine – from the UK’s first successful heart transplant in 1979 to the world’s first successful heart, lung and liver transplant in 1986.
Our move to the new Papworth Hospital is the next chapter in our story. It is our chance to keep making history and continue pioneering new treatments that save lives across the world. Our new location on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus will also give us much greater opportunity to work with other research organisations and hospitals to bring new treatments to patients more quickly.
Along with the rest of the site we will be adding to this section to reflect our educational, research, and clinical activities.
