Southwest Transplant Alliance (STA), made a record–breaking 1,267 organs available for transplant in 2017 because of the selfless, lifesaving gifts of 385 organ donors. This marks STA’s highest number of organs transplanted and organ donors in a single year, topping last year’s record of 1,210 from 380 donors.

STA also enhanced and improved the lives of 326 persons through the recovery of tissue.

The 1,267 figure is the largest number of organs transplanted by an OPO in the state of Texas in a given year.  It represents a 76 percent increase since 2013. Below is a video we made to remember why and who we do this work for.
