MEDICAL SCHOOL DONATIONS
DONATING YOUR BODY TO SCIENCE
If you wish to donate your body to science it is still the responsibility of you or your family to contact a funeral home to assist with the donation.
We pride ourselves by not being a traditional funeral home and specialize in anatomical donations.
Here is what you can expect from us when donating a body to science:
Upon notification of the passing of a loved one who wishes to be donated to science, Hughes Funeral Alternatives, LLC will:
Respond - Immediately respond, no matter the time of day, and bring your loved one into our care.
Coordinate - Coordinate with the medical school and establish a time to deliver your loved one to them.
Documents - Obtain as many death certificates as the family desires. We will also compose an obituary for your loved one which will be placed on our website.
Services - Help plan a memorial service for your loved one if you desire to have one.
Along with these services, Hughes Funeral Alternatives will notify social security of your loved one’s passing.
In most cases, a person must be registered with the school before they pass away to be accepted in their program.
Contact us to register you or your loved one with the school of your choice.
