At Indiana Donor Network, our values of thinking big, serving well and being remarkable guide our actions and support our continuing dedication to the important work we do in saving and healing lives through organ, tissue and eye donation. One of our teams, organ services, plays a crucial role in supporting those values.

Meet Tom Buschur. He has joined Indiana Donor Network as a new organ recovery coordinator. Let’s take a few minutes to get to know him!

Tell us a little about yourself and your new role at Indiana Donor Network.

My name is Tom. I am originally from Ohio.  I graduated in 2012 from Ball State University with my nursing degree. I have been a nurse for almost five years now. Time flies! I spent my first year on a medical/surgical floor, followed by almost three years in the emergency department at Ball Memorial Hospital. I spent the last year at Indiana University Health, splitting my time between the IU Health North, Saxony and Tipton Hospitals.

Of all employers, why did you choose Indiana Donor Network?

You never stop learning as a nurse but after five years at the bedside in similar settings, Indiana Donor Network will be a whole new world for me, one full of learning opportunities. I know a couple people already who work at Indiana Donor Network and they all have seem to love it. 

What are you most excited about working at Indiana Donor Network?

One of the most exciting things for me is using my knowledge and I look forward to applying my skills in donor management.  

 When not at work, what do you do for fun?

When I’m not working, I enjoy reading, video games, trying to get back into working out, and exploring Broad Ripple and downtown Indy.
