Annual Reports

Midwest Transplant Network celebrated five decades of commitment to organ donation, donor heroes, donor families, transplant recipients, hospital and community partners, community engagement and so much more in 2023. We celebrated in many ways, from acknowledging our history at critical care symposiums, staff Town Halls and donor family activities to a huge 50th Anniversary Staff Celebration in the fall. It was an exciting year!

MTN began its journey into tissue donation in 1989 at the request of local hospitals to provide seamless service, and in the mid-90s, we assumed operations of the KC Eye Bank, furthering our mission to save and enhance lives.

Our focus on donor families and donor heroes demonstrates compassionate care and support as families find ways to honor their loved ones. With our new Donor Care and Surgical Recovery Unit, we cared for donor hero patients and their families with dignity.

In 2023, MTN ranked among the top organ procurement organizations in the country by Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, recognized as Tier 1A and third in the nation for donation and transplantation rates. The achievement reflects the generosity of donor heroes, strong partnerships with hospitals and transplant centers, dedicated staff and innovation and improvement.

It’s an honor to know that since 1973 when Midwest Organ Bank saved 12 lives through organ donation that we’d grow into a leading OPO that saves hundreds of lives a year. We appreciate everyone involved in the donation process and the important role each of them plays in enabling the gift of life through donation.

Warm regards,
