The Mission


 

The mission of the Nevada Donor Network Foundation is to partner with Nevada Donor Network and the community to lead the advancement of healthcare in Nevada.

Our vision is to achieve a longstanding goal of having a full-scale transplant institute to anchor and drive the growth of the healthcare sector in Nevada.

The Nevada Donor Foundation was born from a dream to end the waiting for hundreds of Nevadans and thousands of Americans on the national organ transplant list. We believe Nevada must follow the lead of other states and expand services through the development of a full-scale transplant institute to meet the health and economic development needs of the region in the future. Therefore, the creation of a transplant institute represents a vital piece in establishing Nevada as a center for health innovation and economic development. It also provides the key to growing physician workforce, research, and commercial spin-off activities. Once liver and kidney transplant programs are established, adult and pediatric heart programs and then lung programs can immediately follow.
