CHA Supports Donate Life Effort
Hospitals encouraged to help register organ, tissue donors

CHA encourages hospitals to assist in the ongoing effort to register organ and tissue donors. In California, the Donate Life California Organ & Tissue Donor Registry is the nonprofit, state-authorized organ and tissue donor registry that records decisions to donate in a secure, confidential database that is searched by authorized organ and tissue recovery personnel at the time of an actual donation opportunity.

The registry is administered by Donate Life California and California’s four nonprofit, federally designated organ recovery organizations: California Transplant Donor Network, Sierra Donor Services, Lifesharing and OneLegacy. As a state-authorized public service, the registry assures the confidentiality of all personal information and stores it in a secure database, accessible only to authorized organ and tissue recovery personnel.
