    Pima County Office of Medical Examiner (PCOME) Funeral Home Site

    This site can be used to find out if a particular decedent is ready for release.

    Release Hours

    Please call (520) 724-8600, Option 2, for questions and release hours.

    Releases can be made outside of scheduled hours with advance notice, and depending on circumstances.  Call the Morgue Supervisor or Department Manager at (520) 724-8600 to make arrangements.  Releases will also be made outside of scheduled hours if you are transporting a decedent to the PCOME for a scheduled examination and you are arriving outside of scheduled release hours.

    Important News

    Please use this site to check if a decedent is ready for release before calling the PCOME.  The site will be updated in real time, as soon as a decedent is ready for release.  Once your decedent is ready for release, please bring the "Authority to Release Remains" form with you or provide it to your transport driver.  If the authority to release the remains was given by someone other than the decedent's next of kin, please bring a copy of the Power of Attorney paperwork with you too.
