MBJ staff
A $2.2 million dollar surgical suite facility will be added to the Mississippi Organ Recovery Agency at 4400 Lakeland Dr. in Flowood.

It will be one of seven national on-site organ and tissue recovery suites associated with an organ procurement organization. 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 grafts.  Kevin Stump, the chief executive of the agency, said in a news release that “first and foremost, this clinical addition will save more lives.

The recovery suites will also help to reduce the agency’s cost associated with off-site recoveries, a cost reduction that will be passed on to recipients and transplant centers. The projected opening of the addition is the fall of 2016.
