Support Organ and Tissue Donation

The Healthcare Association of New York State (HANYS) and Healthcare Trustees of New York State (HTNYS) support organ and tissue donation and have created a campaign to raise awareness about the need for life-saving organ donations. Our activities in April, National Donate Life Month, will include highlighting our members’ activities, social media outreach, and inspirational interview videos. We have created a Toolkit for our hospital and health system members to support their efforts to promote organ and tissue donation.

HANYS and HTNYS are encouraging New Yorkers to join the New York State Donate Life Registry, giving legal consent for the recovery of organs, tissues, and eyes for the purposes of transplantation and research at the time of death.
