The UNOS Organ Center is actively supporting the transplant hospitals and organ procurement organizations in the areas being impacted by current catastrophic conditions. We are assisting members as needed with organ placement or management of key donor or candidate data, in order to provide continuity of essential services.
In case of a short-term disruption of activity (a week or less), your transplant program is your best contact for information regarding their facility status, appointment scheduling, and availability of critical services.
Patients who need information or assistance in the event of a long-term disruption, such as a need to relocate to another transplant program can contact UNOS’ toll-free Patient Services line, (888) 894-6361. It is normally staffed from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Eastern time Monday through Friday.
