Southwest Transplant Alliance (STA) is a non-profit organization that serves as the bridge between those who make the decision to donate their organs and those needing a life-saving organ transplant throughout much of Texas.
Mission and Core Values
STA’s mission is to save lives through organ, eye and tissue donation and transplantation. We can accomplish our mission when all employees believe in our core values of being passionate, selfless team players.
Our caring and compassionate staff offers hope to those facing the devastating loss of a loved one. Our team works in hospitals to guide grieving families through the organ donation process and to provide the clinical services needed to recover, prepare and transport organs to those awaiting a life-saving transplant. STA is also committed to educating the public about the need for donation and the importance of donor registration by supporting the Donate Life Texas registry.
An Important Role Provided Across the State
STA plays a vital role in the recovery of donated organs for transplant. We are part of a nationwide network of agencies that are responsible for coordinating the recovery and allocation of organs within our federally designated service area.
STA is affiliated with 11 hospital transplant centers that perform organ transplants, working with these partners along with the staff of more than 200 hospitals in 96 Texas counties.
