New York state and the region lag behind the nation in organ donor registrations.

That’s according to a new report from Excellus Blue Cross Blue Shield.

While less than half of American adults (48%) are registered organ and tissue donors, only 22% of New York state adults are on the registry.

In the Utica-Rome/North Country region, 26% of adults are registered.

The report shows about 10,500 New Yorkers await organ or tissue transplants.
