TEMPLE (January 22, 2013)--Scott & White Hospital in Temple now has the only lung transplant program between Dallas and San Antonio, a company spokesperson said.

Doctors will meet Wednesday with local media to discuss the program.

In October, a Giddings man underwent the procedure to receive a new lung, marking the hospital’s first procedure of its kind.

According to a Scott & White spokesperson, there are currently 160 patients in Texas waiting for a new lung.
