In partnership with our service hospitals, patients in our communities receive the necessary blood products and skillful, compassionate care to meet their individual needs.
Therapeutic ProceduresSome patients need to give blood components or undergo apheresis (ay-fur-ee-sis) procedures as part of their treatment for certain diseases. Apheresis utilizes a centrifuge that spins the blood to separate the components, removing the desired component and returning all remaining components to the patient.
Autologous DonationBefore a scheduled surgery, some patients referred by a physician can store their own blood for transfusion.
Directed Donation ProgramWhen ordered by a physician, patients may specify their own donors for an expected transfusion.
Injections and ImmunizationsPatients referred by a physician may receive injections and / or immunizations.
Platelet ProgramServices and research help care for patients with low platelet counts.
