Can my loved one still be an organ and/or tissue donor?

Answer: 

Our office commonly works with Iowa Donor Network to arrange for organ and/or tissue donation. A need for an autopsy does not necessarily preclude organ and/or tissue donation. Although extenuating circumstances may prevent donation, all eligible donors will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

If you are interested in donation, please contact either Iowa Donor Network or our facility prior to autopsy.
