NATCO has a long history...Throughout the late 1960's and 1970's coordinators sought other colleagues from whom they could learn, but also with whom they could network in order to create a means of sharing organs from one donor across the country, with patients at other centers.  NATCO grew out of a need for coordinators to build the US donation and transplantation system, as well as to define their profession.

Today, NATCO continues to provide the means for coordinators to excel in their profession.  NATCO is the only organization of its kind dedicated to the advancement of both, donation and  transplant professionals.
