After mergers in 2010 and 2011, we have operated under three different names: Central Illinois Community Blood Center, Community Blood Services of Illinois, and Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center.
Our official, legal name and the name used on our FDA license is Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center. The other two names are used as d/b/a/ (“doing business as”) in Central Illinois and Eastern Illinois.

Our new name…
This change is not due to any other change in our organization (no merger, acquisition, etc.).
We will update all points where our name and logo are used. For example: building signs, vehicles, business cards, letterhead, blood drive posters, brochures, email addresses, website, blood bags, and logo’d apparel. This process is already underway, however not all of the changes can be made immediately.
