Scott & White to have lung transplant program

CENTRAL TEXAS, TX (KXXV) -

Scott & White Hospital is now the only hospital in Central Texas to have a lung transplant program. Tracy Barnett is the first person to get a lung transplant at the hospital.

More than two dozen patients in Central Texas had to go elsewhere to have that surgery.

Two are on the waiting list now at Scott & White, and this new program allows them the chance to have that procedure without going to Dallas or Houston. Scott & White must conduct ten transplants in a twelve month period to get medicare approval.
