Organ and Tissue

Organ and Tissue Donation

In Imperial County, San Diego Eye Bank, Save A Life America, and the Life Saving are our local organ and tissue procurement organizations.

Deaths that fall under our jurisdiction require our approval for donation, and we do all that is possible to allow procurement in every case where donation is desired by the family. These arrangements are made by these organizations, and if a loved one is in a position to donate and meets the requirements, they will contact you to discuss the option to donate. We encourage organ and tissue donation, and approve the vast majority of donation requests under our jurisdiction, however there are rare exceptions where limits may be placed due to the nature of the death or the involvement of law enforcement.
