Organ Retrieval

  • LifeLink
    On April 11, 2014, Memorial Health and LifeLink of Georgia held a flag-raising ceremony to fly a “Donate Life” flag on our campus.

    Memorial University Medical Center (MUMC) proudly works with LifeLink of Georgia to retrieve donor organs for life-saving transplants.

    LifeLink Memorial Health The Donate Life flag is a symbol of unity and hope for the roughly 121,000 people in the U.S. who are in need of an organ donation, including 4,300 people in Georgia.

    We do not perform organ transplants at MUMC, but we do assist families throughout the donor process. Our highly trained surgeons remove donor organs and tissue and prepare them for a safe and fast transport to recipients in transplant facilities. We also house a satellite clinic for Piedmont Hospital Transplant Services. The clinic conducts pre-screening and follow-up appointments for kidney, liver, and pancreas transplants performed at Piedmont Hospital in Atlanta.

    If you would like to be an organ donor, we encourage you to register with Donate Life Georgia, our state's organ, tissue, and eye donor registry.
