A Guide For Families

The success of organ and tissue donation hinges on our partnership with healthcare professionals in the 90+ hospitals in this region and our dual commitment to support donor families and transplant recipients.

Early referrals and the management of the patient by hospital staff allow DonorConnect staff to quickly evaluate the patient’s ability to become a donor.

DonorConnect is committed to a successful partnership with you and your hospital in support of donor families and transplant recipients. How to contact DonorConnect: Call the Donor Referral Line at 800-833-6667 or 1-800-83-DONOR. We are available 24/7, every day of the year.

Hospital Reports

On a monthly basis, DonorConnect requests a detailed list of deaths from each hospital in our donation service area. This is in compliance with 42 CFR Part 482 – Medicare and Medicaid Services; Conditions of Participation (CoPs), which states that hospitals must “…work cooperatively with the designated OPO, tissue bank and eye bank in educating staff on donation issues, reviewing death records to improve identification of potential donors and maintaining potential donors…”

In order to properly review the mortality data/death records, we ask that hospitals provide us with a list of all deaths at their facility each month.
