Stay up to date with what is happening at Mid-America Transplant
More than 1,300 St. Louisans are currently waiting for a life-saving organ transplant. For some, it is their only hope of survival, and more lives could be saved each year if more people made the decision to join the organ and tissue donor registry. Additionally, thousands benefit from tissue donation annually.
In working with 120 hospitals, Mid-America Transplant Services is proud to recognize the efforts of our hospital partners. In recent years, many of our partners have started donor councils, groups designed to educate staff and the public, and ensure every family is given the opportunity to donate their loved one’s organs and tissue. While the constant in each example below is the passionate people behind the donor council, these examples show how different models, goals and approaches can be successful. We’re excited to share their best practices.
