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 tissues to those who need a lifesaving transplant.
Our Purpose and Core Values
STA’s purpose is to save lives through organ 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 and tissue donation process and to provide the clinical services needed to recover, prepare and transport organs and tissues for those awaiting a lifesaving 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 and tissues for transplant. We are part of a nationwide network of agencies that are responsible for coordinating the recovery and allocation of organs and tissues 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 280 hospitals in 96 Texas counties.
