Hospital Professionals

Our medical and hospital partners play a crucial role in making donation possible by identifying and referring potential donors in a timely manner. When medical eligibility and consent for donation are confirmed, we collaborate to support donor families, coordinate successful donation and, ultimately, provide lifesaving and life-enhancing organ and tissue transplants for people in need.

Gift of Hope Hospital Development offers a series of Continuing Education Webinars. Registration is required. See below for more information.
