Mission and Vision

The Work We Do

New England Organ Bank is one of two federally designated, non-profit organ procurement organizations affiliated with New England Donor Services which coordinates organ and tissue donation in all or part of the six New England states and Bermuda. Since our founding in 1968, New England Organ Bank has served thousands of donor families who have generously made the decision to donate.

As one of 58 OPOs that make up the nation’s donation system, we work with over 150 hospitals and serve 11 million people in our region. Working sensitively with the donor families, NEOB staff participates in donation consent discussions, maintains medical support of potential donors, coordinates recovery surgeries, allocates organs according to the national transplant waiting list and directs transport of organs to transplant centers and tissues to processors. Through these donations, New England Organ Bank saves and enhances the lives of organ and tissue transplant recipients in our region and across the country.
