COVID-19 VACCINATION STATUS. Because most hospitals where TransMedics perform services require vendors to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, and working on-site at these hospitals is an essential function of your position with the Company, you will also be required to be appropriately vaccinated. The Company provides any necessary legal accommodations to this mandate,  so long as it does not impose undue burden to the company. Given that working on-site at hospitals is an essential function of your position, there are limits to our ability to provide reasonable accommodations.



TransMedics, Inc., headquartered in Andover, MA, is revolutionizing organ care.  With the goal of bringing new life to organ transplant, the pioneering Organ Care System (OCS™) was developed to address the major limitations of the current standard of care, cold storage.  The OCS System serves as a portable, miniature intensive care unit that helps preserve donor organs in a near-physiologic state during transport.  Unlike traditional cold-storage methods, the OCS System features ex-vivo, warm perfusion, and provides the means to monitor organ health, so that transplant patients can experience better outcomes. The only multi-organ platform, with the largest body of clinical evidence, the OCS System is designed to increase utilization and transplant volumes so that more transplantable organs can be made available worldwide.  The Organ Care System is nothing less than a paradigm shift that can help transform organ preservation and optimization so that more patients can benefit from life-saving transplant procedures.
