Saving & Enhancing Lives
The Pacific Northwest Transplant Bank is the federally designated organ procurement organization serving Oregon, Southwest Washington and Western Idaho. It is part of the United Network for Organ Sharing's Region 6, which includes all of Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana and Alaska.
Our staff work with hospitals to ensure collaboration on organ and tissue donation. We provide support to donor families and ensure clear communication between the donor family and recipient. And that's just the beginning.
