We’ve outlined the basic procedure for donating your body to Science Care and made the process as straightforward as possible, not only to be efficient, but to keep it very simple for your loved ones or caregivers at a difficult time.
Upon acceptance, Science Care covers all costs of donation, including cremation, transportation, and filing of the death certificate. Tissue not recovered for research and education is cremated and returned in 3-5 weeks. If you also want to be an organ transplant donor, here for details.
Joining the donor registry is an important first step and helps to make your wishes known to your loved ones. Your information is never shared and is kept confidential with restricted access.
If you need more information or have questions about whole body donation, please give us a call. Our family services coordinators are available 24 hours a day – 7 days a week and can answer all of your questions.
