Whether you are already a transplant recipient or currently on the waiting list, we are here for you. In addition to our ongoing efforts to promote donor registration, Midwest Transplant Network coordinates the procurement of vital organs, tissues and corneas in hospitals throughout Kansas and western Missouri. We have an unwavering commitment to our role in providing life-saving transplants for recipients across the region.
We also work closely with the five local transplant centers to oversee the care, placement and transportation of donor organs. Transplant centers in our region include:
- Children’s Mercy Hospital, Kansas City, MO
- Research Medical Center, Kansas City, MO
- Saint Luke’s Health System, Kansas City, MO
- University of Missouri Health Care, Columbia, MO
- University of Kansas Hospital, Kansas City, KS
Communication with a Donor Family
Of course, none of this would be possible without the generosity of organ donors and their families. To help transplant recipients express their gratitude to the family members of organ donors, Midwest Transplant Network helps facilitate communication with donor families.
