Midwest Transplant Network has a rich history of partnering with Kansas and Missouri hospitals to bring the gift of life to those in need throughout our region. Our Hospital Services staff members work closely with healthcare professionals, sharing best practices and important information about organ, eye and tissue donation.
Our goal is to ensure every hospital has effective processes in place to manage the option of organ donation. This process is often customized to the specific needs of each hospital and is continually evaluated to achieve desired outcomes.
Current and donation-focused education is another benefit for hospitals that partner with Midwest Transplant Network. We provide continuing education opportunities that range from formal classroom programs to one-on-one sessions for physicians, nurses and ancillary staff who need the latest details on donation procedures.
