Together, we save lives in our community.
Saving and healing lives since 1986
Lifebanc began 35 years ago as one of the original seven independent organ procurement organizations in the United States. Since then, we’ve been serving Northeast Ohio as a nonprofit organ and tissue recovery organization to more than 80 hospitals and two transplant centers.
But, our mission cannot be accomplished alone. Our hospitals and transplant centers, community partners, volunteers, and dedicated staff members have helped us save and heal more lives. You can helps save and heal lives too.
