Donate Blood

One in seven people entering the hospital will need blood. You can save the lives of up to three people each time you give blood. Blood donation costs you nothing but your time, and only takes an hour or less!

How your blood donation helps

Our doctors use blood donations for patients undergoing treatments such as:

  • Cancer therapy
  • Emergency surgery
  • Many other medical treatments 

Some donors are able to make a special kind of blood donation called apheresis (ay-fur-ee-sis). Apheresis can collect enough platelets from one donor to make an entire platelet dose. Although this process is very similar to a regular blood donation, it takes a little longer - one to one and a half hours. To find out if you would make a good apheresis donor, contact us at St. Mary's Regional Blood Center so we can check your platelet count.

Blood is always needed

People think of donating blood when there’s an accident or emergency, but all communities need donors all the time. That's because volunteer donors are our only source of blood. And since donated blood only lasts 42 days, we need a constant supply to be sure we're ready when you, your child or your neighbor needs it.

Blood donation is safe and simple

We’ll ask a series of questions to determine if you’re eligible to give blood. From there, a trained phlebotomist (a professional who specializes in drawing blood from patients) will get you started. Your blood donation can mean the difference between life and death for someone in need. 

Visit us at St. Mary’s Regional Blood Center in the Advanced Medicine Pavilion, 750 Wellington Ave., Entrance 22, Second Floor.
