Nantucket Cottage Hospital supports The New England Organ
Bank ( www.NEOB.org) , an independent non-profit agency whose mission is to
recover, preserve, and distribute human organs and tissues
Each year, thousands of organ transplants are performed in
U.S. transplant centers, saving and altering many lives.
None of this is possible without the gift of life - the donation
of organs and tissues for those who desperately need them.
Donating organs and tissues affords the donor the opportunity
to give life and health to someone else. Becoming an organ
donor is as simple as signing a donor card and telling your
family. If you change your mind, you can simply destroy the
card and inform your family that your wishes have changed.
For additional information about organ donation, please ask
your nurse or physician.
