Southwest Transplant Alliance pays for the medical care to recover organs and tissues from deceased donors. These expenses include evaluations, lab testing, inpatient hospital services during the donation, surgeons’ fees, STA medical staff, air and ground transportation and medical case management. Southwest Transplant Alliance does not pay for expenses related to care prior to a patient’s death or funeral expenses.

STA receives funding through the fees we charge to the transplant centers and tissue partners who reimburse us for our service in managing this complex, highly-skilled and specific work. We are regulated by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).  We are also accountable to the generous financial contributors who support us and, most of all, to the donor families we serve and the transplant recipients whose lives we impact.

Financial gifts can be a meaningful way to honor a loved one or friend, mark a special occasion or support the cause of organ donation and transplantation. Funds contributed to Southwest Transplant Alliance will be distributed through the Southwest Transplant Alliance Foundation. STA created the  Foundation to honor and support the gift of life through organ donation. The foundation’s mission is to invest in community education, care for organ donor families and transplant recipients, and advance transplant science.
