The Alabama Organ Center (AOC) is the federally designated organ procurement organization for the state of Alabama. We work with all of the hospitals in the state to coordinate their donation services. Like all organ procurement organizations, the AOC is a non-profit organization.
We provide a variety of services:
- Hospital education
- Public education
- Screening of potential donors
- Coordination of the donation process
- Family support
The AOC is committed to providing a better quality of life for those who require an organ or tissue transplant, while respecting the families who share the gift of life.
