Mid-America Transplant Services (MTS) changes lives for the better. Since 1974, MTS has facilitated the organ and tissue donation process for a service area of 4.7 million people in eastern Missouri, southern Illinois, and northeast Arkansas. With a mission to save lives through excellence in organ and tissue donation, MTS compassionately provides care for donors, transplant recipients and their families. To drive the organization’s mission, MTS builds strong partnerships with 122 hospitals, four transplant centers, seven tissue specialists and multiple community organizations. Committed to an innovative approach, MTS is the first OPO in the nation to utilize an in-house operating room model for organ recovery and the first to operate license offices to increase community support through donor registry enrollment. Throughout the organization’s history, the workforce has relentlessly pursued its core values of compassion, quality, teamwork, integrity, and innovation to pursue a vision that organs and tissues are always available to those in need. Located in St. Louis, MO, MTS is a not-for-profit organization and is one of 58 federally designated organizations of its kind in the United States.
