Whether you have recently experienced the miracle of transplantation or are on the waiting list for an organ transplant, we hope you will find the information in this section helpful.
You may not be aware of the role that MTN plays in the transplant process. MTN coordinates the procurement of vital organs, tissues and corneas in hospitals in Kansas and western and central Missouri. We also work closely with the six transplant centers located within our service area to oversee the care, placement and transportation of the donor organ.
While MTN played a part in your second chance at life, none of this would be possible without the generosity of the donor family – the family that, in their time of devastation and loss, made the decision to give someone else life.
Transplant centers in the MTN region include:
Research Medical Center, Kansas City
Children’s Mercy Hospital, Kansas City
Saint Luke’s Hospital, Kansas City
University Hospital, Columbia, MO
University of Kansas Hospital, Kansas City
Via Christi Hospital on St. Francis, Wichita
90 percent of Americans say they support donation, but only 30 percent know the steps needed to become a donor.
