URGENT NEED: We have an urgent need to replenish our supply of Type O-negative red blood cells. Multiple victims of a trauma are being treated at a hospital that receives blood components from our Blood Center. Blood is available for patient care but we must now replace a high volume of units used in the trauma. O-negative donors, please schedule an appointment for donation as soon as possible by calling (800) 747-5401 or via our online scheduling system

We are proud to be the provider of blood products and services to more than 110 hospitals in Illinois, Iowa, Missouri and Wisconsin from seven regional distribution hubs. As inventory allows, additional units are provided to hospitals across the country through a national resource sharing program.

Effective January 8, 2020
