Louisiana Organ Procurement Agency (LOPA) was established on April 1, 1988, as an independent, not-for-profit organ and tissue recovery agency. LOPA is federally designated by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid as the organ procurement organization (OPO) responsible for servicing the state of Louisiana.
LOPA is tasked with two main objectives:
housing and maintaining the Louisiana Donor Registry, and
recovering organs and tissue for transplant
LOPA partners with professionals throughout the state, including eye banks and all hospitals within Louisiana, to accomplish its life saving and enhancing goals. Education is key to this process, and their staff offers a variety of educational opportunities for the public and professionals within our state.
LOPA's Core Purpose is Making Life Happen.
