UNOS or United Network for Organ Sharing is a non-profit, scientific and educational organization.
The doctors of Seattle Grace (later Seattle Grace Mercy West and Grey Sloan Memorial) frequently obtain their organs for organ donation through there, or else check with the organization to go ahead with a Directed Transplant, which is when the organ goes to a patient in the hospital that needs it rather than someone selected from a list of people who need organs.
Notes and TriviaEdit
- UNOS is a real-life organization.
- When Erica Hahn threatened to inform them of what Izzie Stevens did to obtain a heart transplant for Denny, Callie Torres replied that UNOS would discredit them as a transplant institution.
