Date:11/30/2007

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va., Nov. 30 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- LifeNet Health, a leading biomedical and allograft agency, announces a strategic affiliation with Louisiana Organ Procurement Agency (LOPA), a federally designated organ procurement organization. The LifeNet Health - LOPA partnership will significantly enhance LOPA's tissue donor program. The anticipated increase in tissue donations will provide an expanded biomedical allograft tissue product line for Louisiana surgeons and patients.

LOPA focuses on educating the medical community and the general public about organ and tissue donation, working with families through the donation process, recovering donated organs and tissue, and placing the organs and tissue for transplant. LOPA was founded in 1988 and has saved thousands of lives through organ donation and provided tens of thousands of tissue grafts to patients in need of transplantation. LOPA has its main office in Metairie, with regional offices in Baton Rouge, Lafayette, and Shreveport.

LifeNet Health provides recovery and processing services for musculoskeletal and cardiovascular tissues, distributing more than 200,000 biomedical implants every year to restore health to patients around the world. Since 1995, LifeNet Health has distributed 1.5 million biomedical implants with no incidence of disease transmission linked to tissue screened and processed by LifeNet Health.

Under this alliance, LOPA will continue to direct tissue recovery efforts in its service area and LifeNet Health will provide tissue processing and distribution services at its state-of-the-art facility in Virginia Beach. This partnership will make LifeNet Health's allograft tissue products more readily available to Louisiana surgeons. These biomedical implants will help patients who suffer from spinal injuries, sports injuries, burn, heart valve disease and many other medical conditions.

Rony Thomas, CEO of LifeNet Health, states, "This strategic alliance with LOPA will help serve the patients in the Louisiana area. We are proud to be able to partner with LOPA because of their commitment to save and enhance lives. With this new opportunity we will be able to provide a full line of LifeNet Health biomedical grafts to the hospitals and surgeons."

"LifeNet Health's safety record is unsurpassed. We are very excited to enter this partnership with LifeNet Health and continue our strong commitment to our donor families and all the patients in Louisiana," says Kelly Ranum, Executive Director of LOPA.

Founded in 1982 and headquartered in Virginia Beach, VA, LifeNet Health Inc., is a leading biomedical alloengineering organization and organ and tissue donation agency whose mission is saving lives and restoring health.
