About Us


Our Mission

Mid-South Transplant Foundation, Inc. is the federally designated Organ Procurement Organization (OPO) serving western Tennessee, eastern Arkansas, and northern Mississippi.

We were founded in 1976 by Dr. Louis Britt – a transplant surgeon who performed the first kidney transplant here in Memphis in 1970.

As an OPO, Mid-South Transplant Foundation (MSTF)’s mission is to advocate for all organ and tissue donors and recipients. Our role is to increase organ and tissue donation in our community and to ensure that the patients who are in most need receive them.

Mission Statement

To improve the quality of lives through excellence  in the process of organ and tissue donation and transplantation.

Vision Statement

To create a proactive alliance between Mid-South Transplant Foundation, health care professionals and members of the community that will increase the donation of organs and tissue for transplantation.
