Organ Donation After Death Policy at Kingsbrook Jewish Medical Center

A message for patients and families:

It is our goal to provide the highest standard of care for our patients, with the aims of saving life, improving quality of life, and relieving suffering. When you come to Kingsbrook Jewish Medical Center for care, you can be assured that your well-being is our highest priority.

In accordance with federal law, Kingsbrook Jewish Medical Center works with the New York Organ Donor Network to improve opportunities for organ and tissue donation. When it is appropriate, the hospital works with representatives of the New York Organ Donor Network to help families consider the opportunity to donate organs and/or tissues after the death of a family member.

Donation is a meaningful act that helps others and can be a source of comfort to the donor family. Organ transplants save lives, and improving the rate of organ donation so that more lives can be saved is an important hospital function, according to the United States Department of Health and Human Services.

If you have any questions or concerns about organ donation, we encourage you to contact the New York Organ Donor Network at 646-291-4444, or visit the NY Organ Donor Network website, Of course, the hospital staff is also available to assist you.
