Our mission is

to save

and improve lives



Tennessee Donor Services (TDS) is a top-performing, nonprofit healthcare organization serving nearly six million people in Tennessee. Our exceptional team of professionals saves and improves lives by connecting lifesaving organ, eye and tissue donations to the patients who need them.

As part of DCI Donor Services, TDS collaborates closely with affiliate organ procurement organizations New Mexico Donor Services and Sierra Donor Services, as well as DCI Donor Services Tissue Bank and Sierra Donor Services Eye Bank.

TDS operates in an ethically and financially responsible manner to honor and respect the gifts of each organ and tissue donor and to ensure public trust. Our performance is measured by the impact we have on the lives of donor families and the patients receiving lifesaving organ and healing tissue transplants.

Every member of the TDS team is dedicated to our core values of being selfless, hardworking, passionate, and dependable. Together, we work tirelessly, 24 hours a day, 365 days each year, to achieve our mission of saving and improving lives. It is our hope that our commitment to the communities we serve will end the transplant waiting list and grant many a second chance at life.
