Medical Examiners & Coroners


CORE works closely with medical examiners and coroners throughout our coverage area in Pennsylvania, West Virginia and New York to ensure successful outcomes for organ, tissue and cornea donation.

Coroners and medical examiners and their staffs play an important role in the donation process. Because all unexpected deaths require coroner or medical examiner review, their cooperation and support is imperative for ensuring successful organ, tissue and cornea donations that change the lives of thousands of transplant recipients each year.

The National Association of Medical Examiners (NAME) formalized its support of organ and tissue donation in an organizational position paper, which is available for review on the NAME Website.
