Organ Donation

Organ donation saves thousands of lives each year and provides meaningful options for donor families who have lost loved ones.  In North Carolina there are nearly 3,000 people on the waiting list for organ transplant.  Nationally, there are more than 92,000 people waiting.

New Hanover Regional Medical Center supports organ donation by  working with Carolina Donor Services, a federally-designated, not-for-profit organ and tissue organization serving people in 79 counties of North Carolina and Danville, Virginia.

In 2006, NHRMC was awarded the US Department of Health and Human Services Organ Donation Medal of Honor for its work to promote organ donation.

If you would like more information about becoming an organ donor, visit the Carolina Donor Services website at or call 1-800-200-2672.
