RTI Donor Services, Inc., a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing responsible stewardship of the gift of tissue donation, announced a new partnership with the UMTB Donor Services Foundation, a not-for-profit tissue recovery program based in Miami. The partnership aims to treat more patients by providing increased support for families seeking to donate the Gift of Life through tissue donation as well as an expanded level of service for hospital and medical examiner partners in Florida.
As part of this collaboration, RTIDS has leased UMTBDSF’s tissue recovery facility in the Jacksonville area, expanding capacity for accepting donated tissue. This improves the ability of RTIDS to support more donor families, minimize interruption to hospitals with busy operating room schedules, expand support for medical examiner offices in surrounding areas and, ultimately, grow its opportunity to impact more patients who benefit from a tissue-based implant.
Further, UMTBDSF will increase support for donated dermal tissue to meet the growing needs of UF startup RTI Surgical, Inc. RTIDS is affiliated with RTI, a global surgical implant company, and tissue-based implants are a core competency that is central to RTI’s growth strategy as a company.
