Who We Serve

Pacific Northwest Transplant Bank serves the families of organ donors, hospital staff, transplant centers that care for recipients, and a variety of workplace partners.

Our commitment to save lives through organ donation starts with support of organ donors and their families. We begin developing relationships with donor families during the potential donor’s hospitalization. We work with family members to honor their loved one and attempt to meet the diverse needs of every family we encounter. Our family support continues through the donor’s hospitalization and after, as each family copes with life after loss.

We work with transplant centers across the nation to serve the many recipients waiting for transplantable organs. Our local transplant centers include Oregon Health & Science University, the Portland VA Medical Center, and Legacy Good Samaritan Hospital.

We work directly with Community Tissue Services, Lions VisionGift, and the Lions Eye Bank of Idaho. In some cases, we work with reputable research organizations that enhance medical treatments and find cures for human diseases. Donate Life Northwest is the public education agency whose mission is to save and enhance lives through the promotion of organ, eye, and tissue donation.
