New England Organ Bank

The Gift of Life

More than 89,000 Americans are waiting for lifesaving organ transplants and many more wait for donated tissues. On average, 17 people in this country die every day - 6,600 each year - waiting for organ transplant. The reason is simple -- a tragic shortage of donated organs and tissues.

The New England Organ Bank (NEOB) is the oldest independent organ procurement organization (OPO) in the country. It is the federally-designated OPO for all or part of the six New England states.
