Not all hospitals have the staff, training or equipment to perform organ transplants. Hospitals that are staffed and equipped for these complex procedures are called hospital transplant centers and are members of the Organ Procurement and Transplant Network (OPTN). Membership means that the hospital meets OPTN requirements and that they play an active role in forming the policies that govern the transplant community.
There are 254 Transplant Centers in the U.S. STA serves 11 of the 25 Transplant Centers in Texas.
