Please consider becoming a platelet donor, by scheduling an appointment at one of our community donor centers or select mobile drives. The platelet donation process takes about two hours — but it’s two hours well spent since you will be directly responsible for helping to save a life right here in our community.
To find out more about donating platelets, visit our platelets webpage or call our Medical Help Desk at 412-209-7035 (direct dial) or 800-310-9556 option 1.
