LifeNet Health is the only full-service tissue bank in the Pacific Northwest that recovers, prepares and distributes tissue for transplantation, medical research and education.
As both a recovery agency and a tissue processor, LifeNet Health’s dedicated staff partners with hospitals to support and enhance their in-house donation programs, greatly streamlining the process while providing important education to nurses and other medical staff on best practices. These efforts have led to increased donation at Washington hospitals, offering the hope and comfort of donation to families throughout the region. As a mission-minded non-profit, LifeNet Health also offers extensive grief and bereavement support programs for donor families.
As the world’s leading provider of transplant solutions, LifeNet Health cares for and distributes more than 600,000 allografts and implants every year, and it prioritizes returning donor gifts to the local community whenever possible — including more than 40,000 annually to the Pacific Northwest. Additionally, research is a vital component of LifeNet Health’s mission, from efforts to improve tissue recovery and preparation to advanced biomedical research such as drug discovery and 3D bio-printing.
With its comprehensive approach to donation, LifeNet Health holds a unique place in the region’s medical community and functions as a collaborative partner to hospitals — helping fulfill its mission of saving lives, restoring health and giving hope.
