Hospital Development Training and

On Demand Orientation

Hospital Development (HD) or Hospital Services (HS) is a specialized role within the Organ Procurement Organizations (OPO). This role is crucial to the implementation and refinement of the organ, eye, and tissue donation process in hospitals. A robust foundational knowledge of the historical and current regulatory framework and standards of practice of organ, eye and tissue donation and transplantation, coupled with the soft skills to perform the role are crucial to the success of creating hospital ownership of the donation process and to help them reach their donation potential. 

Experienced HD/HS professionals are available to provide consulting and customized onsite and online trainings through offering:

  • Foundational & advanced HD/HS trainings at your OPO

  • On demand, online, instructor-led orientation sessions for brand new HD/HS staff and other staff who need some introductory HD/HS knowledge (one-on-one training outline and group training outline

  • Personalized, one-on-one or group coaching and training onsite and online for brand new HD/HS leaders (managers/directors).

  • HD/HS Consulting services

Tell us about your needs by clicking on "email Fundamental Roots" and we will work out a plan with you to suit you and your staff's needs.

For new hires requiring HD training, please fill in the notification form "New Hires" to schedule their training.

“I started Hedi’s Fundamentals Training with no prior experience in organ donation. I was new to the role and to the company and trying to understand the process of organ donation seemed daunting. However, from the first day of training and all the way through to the last, Hedi not only shared her many years of experience with me, but gave me the best foundation to be successful in my role as a Hospital Services Coordinator. 

To be able to form a relationship with someone as knowledgeable, insightful, and experienced as Hedi is something is something that I will continue to cherish. I would highly recommend everyone to take advantage of her training. To me, her training was invaluable.”

— Tracy Wright, LifeCenter Organ Donor Network
