Dakota Lions Sight & Health
Dakota Lions Sight & Health (DLSH) is a nationally-recognized, regulated, and accredited eye and tissue bank serving the people and communities of South Dakota, North Dakota, and portions of western Minnesota and northern Nebraska. The organization is headquartered in Sioux Falls, SD with satellite offices in Rapid City, SD; Bismarck, ND; and Fargo, ND. DLSH provides nearly 1000 corneas for transplant annually from over 550 donors. We serve the donor families with a comprehensive bereavement care program following donation.
In addition to transplant tissues, we are proud to partner with local and national organizations to further medical advances and education by providing tissue for research. Further, we serve our communities through education and outreach. We provide education and training opportunities to medical professionals (EMS, nurses, social workers) as well as the public through health fairs, community education programs, and other donation outreach programs.
Our team of professionals is dedicated to meeting our Mission of Helping to Enable the Restoration of the Gifts of Sight & Health.
