The generous gift of tissue donation can dramatically improve the quality of life for recipients. Angela Rosati, Director of RTI Donor Services, emphasizes this critical connection to purpose daily as the Donor Services team honors the gift of tissue donation and raises awareness of its importance.
As a not-for-profit organization, RTI Donor Services partners with tissue recovery organizations to acquire donated tissue on behalf of RTI Surgical. RTI Surgical then processes the tissue into high-quality surgical implants that improve the lives of patients around the world. In her role, Angela ensures the Donor Services team provides the highest level of customer service to recovery partners to meet their needs and expectations.
“Angela’s expertise in tissue donation has allowed us to better understand the needs of our partners to maximize the gift of donation to help the patients who receive tissue implants,” said Jessica Schrauth, Field Account Manager, RTI Donor Services.
As a leader, Angela celebrates the team’s successes, encourages individual development, and looks for opportunities to improve processes to facilitate the best outcomes for donated tissue.
