Organ, Tissue and Eye Donation

The Erie County Medical Examiner’s Office works collaboratively with UNYTS to honor families’ wishes regarding authorization for donation of organs, tissues and eyes from their family member, while maintaining the integrity of the Office's medico-legal responsibilities.

It is with rare exception that the procurement of organs, tissues and eyes is denied by the Erie County Medical Examiner’s office. 

For further information on organ and tissue donations, contact UNYTS at 716-853-6667 ext. 5.
