Harris Hospital:Donating body for Science

Posted in the Harris Forum



#1 Jan 3, 2009
Does any one know if when one donates their body to science after they have died, does this hospital charge the family for cremation? I was under the impression when you donate your organs, etc. to the hospital, they do not charge for these services as they are donated organs and do save lives. Harris hospital is now saying that the body we donated to them will be cremated after they harvest whatever organs, body parts are needed but the family has to pay. How is that possible? I've checked other sites where they say the hospital is grateful for the donation and pays for the cremation and gives the ashes to the family if they want them. Is this another way for the hospital to recoup some of their costs? And is it right that they should now say this to us when they never informed us that there would be a cost? Does any one know?
