Blood Donors & Blood Bank

We Started Recruiting Patients For Our Blood Bank in 2009

We ask that all patients be of good disposition, have current vaccinations, be healthy and weigh more than 55lbs. We blood type and screen all candidates. Once a successful candidate has passed the screening, we ask that they donate in advance at a convenient, prearranged time. Occasionally we need blood on an emergency case and our donors have been fabulous with coming in no matter when we need them!

Ideally, a donor will donate up to a maximum of 4 times per year.
