The non-profit Mississippi Organ Recovery Agency breaks ground Tuesday on a $2.2 million addition to its Flowood headquarters. The on-site access will “dramatically improve the timely recovery for organ and tissue donation, thus improving the outcomes for those in need of lifesaving organ transplants and life improving tissue graphs,” the Mississippi Organ Recovery Agency, or MORA, said.
The recovery suites will also help to reduce cost associated with off-site recoveries, a cost reduction that will be passed on to recipients and transplant centers, MORA said.
The clinical addition is scheduled for a fall opening.
The ceremonial groundbreaking is scheduled for 3 p.m. at the MORA headquarters, 4400 Lakeland Drive.
