It was brought to our attention this evening that an archaic transplant policy was preventing an individual with undocumented status from being evaluated at OHSU. Upon learning of the policy, OHSU leaders acted immediately and terminated the policy. We deeply regret the pain this has caused the family.
OHSU is committed to serving our entire community -- all are welcome at OHSU, and this policy does not reflect our values.
The OHSU transplant team is informing the family of our change in policy tonight. OHSU’s legal team has begun a system-wide audit to ensure no other such policies exist.
