Lifesharing creates heroes through the miracle of organ and tissue donation.

When an individual’s life cannot be saved, it’s our job to see if their organs and tissues can help others. Our medical staff works 24/7 to ensure these lifesaving gifts reach patients in need.

Lifesharing helps transplant hundreds of vital organs each year — including hearts, lungs, livers and kidneys. We also recover tissue for transplantation. Tissue transplants can improve the quality of life for thousands of patients each year. Corneas restore sight, skin can heal burn victims and tendons can help rebuild joints.

Lifesharing supports families in the wake of their loved one’s death and compassionately guides them through the donation process. We are humbled by the generosity of San Diegans and grateful for the support of our hospital and professional partners.

We are proud to serve San Diego and Imperial Counties in Southern California as the federally designated organ procurement organization (OPO). Our unwavering commitment to saving lives has made us one of the top performing OPOs in the nation.
