Saving lives through organ and tissue donation is dependent upon the generosity of donors and their families as well as the partnerships of the many teams and organizations with whom we work. We simply cannot do it alone. Because of this selfless giving, and the collaborative relationships with hospitals throughout Oregon, SW Washington and Western Idaho, we are able to respect and honor the donation decision of patients and their families. We work closely with hospital staff to support families through the end-of-life care process while also providing hope to those waiting for a life-saving transplant. Only when it is clear that survival is no longer a viable option, will we ask you to partner with us as we transition our focus to saving the lives of those who need an organ transplant.
In this section you will find information that explains our shared processes as well as resources that can support you throughout the donation experience.
