Central Blood Bank


To meet the needs of patients in area hospitals, Central Blood Bank must collect 500 units of blood and blood products a day.

We make it easy and convenient for you to donate at one of 21 community donor centers open at various days and times throughout the week, along with nearly 200 mobile blood drives each month.

You can donate anywhere between three and 24 times each year, depending on your type of donation and whether you are eligible to donate. To keep the blood supply safe, and ensure donors are protected, we ask you to complete a questionnaire prior to each donation.

With every blood donation, you save the lives of as many as three patients in area hospitals.
