About Us

Nebraska Organ Recovery is one of 58 organ procurement organizations (OPO) throughout the country dedicated to saving and enhancing lives through organ, tissue and eye donation. We serve all of Nebraska and Pottawattamie County, IA.

As an OPO, we have three main responsibilities:

  • Recover organs and tissues for transplantation
  • Maintain the Donor Registry of Nebraska

Although Nebraska Organ Recovery works in cooperation with all the hospitals and transplant centers in our service area, we are an independent, non-profit organization.
