About Midwest Transplant Network

About Midwest Transplant Network

Midwest Transplant Network (MTN) has been connecting lives in Kansas and western Missouri since 1973. As a federally certified, not-for-profit organ procurement organization (OPO), we work with organ, eye, and tissue donors, their families, hospitals, and other professional partners to extend legacies, provide hope and give life. Together with our partners and volunteers (“Ambassadors”), we are dedicated to increasing awareness and education about the need for organ, eye and tissue donation.

Our mission:
Saving lives by honoring the gift of organ and tissue donation with dignity and compassion

Our vision:
Leading organ and tissue donation through excellence, quality and partnerships

Our commitment:
Midwest Transplant Network is committed to building a diverse and inclusive workforce that reflects the communities we serve. Our Diversity, Equity, Inclusivity & Belonging (DEIB) efforts are focused on sharing and expanding knowledge, valuing differences, building trust, and being inclusive of all who contribute to the success of MTN’s mission.

Our reach and capabilities are continuously expanding. In addition to organ procurement, we offer laboratory testing as well as tissue recovery in our state-of-the-art surgical suite at our headquarters in Westwood, Kansas. Our headquarters also features a dedicated communications center to provide rapid, 24/7 response on referrals from our hospital partners.

MTN ranks in the top 10% in the country among OPOs (according to Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services measures). Our ranking reflects our high standards and strong relationships with our professional partners throughout the region. The result of our lifesaving work can be seen every day in the communities we serve and in the recipients whose lives have been enriched by the generosity of our donors.
