Our mission is

to save

and improve lives



New Mexico Donor Services (NMDS) serves two million people in the state of New Mexico. We are an exceptional team of professionals dedicated to saving and improving lives by connecting organ and tissue donations to the patients who need them. We strive to extend the reach of each generous donor’s gift to those who are always profoundly grateful for them.

NMDS operates in an ethically and financially responsible manner to conserve scarce resources and to ensure public trust. Our performance is measured by the impact we have on the lives of families who make transplantation possible, and the patients whose lives are saved and improved by their gifts. Each NMDS employee commits every day to be:

  • Selfless
  • Hardworking
  • Passionate
  • Dependable

“The thing that I like the most about my job, is taking a tragedy, the worst day of someone’s life and turning into something that gives them hope.”
