Organ & Tissue Donation

For cases under the jurisdiction of the Snohomish County Medical Examiner's Office (SCMEO), only individuals who have passed away in a hospital are eligible for organ and/or tissue donation at this time.  Donation services are provided by LifeCenter Northwest and SightLife.  The SCMEO works closely with both organizations to fulfill the wishes of the deceased and their families when pursuing donation, however we reserve the right to refuse donation in instances where donation may hinder the ability to determine cause and manner of death.  For more information about the benefits of donation services, please click on the sites listed below.
