URGENT NEED FOR VOLUNTEER DONORS - Locally and nationally, blood centers have only 2-3 day supply of type O red blood cells. Supplies of AB plasma and Convalescent Plasma are depleted. We are calling for all healthy members of the public to step up now and support care for patients. Blood donation is safe and essential!  Recent changes to donor eligibility criteria will permit donations by many donors previously deferred. Questions about eligibility? Please fill out the deferral/eligibility inquiry form.

Click here for our response to the Coronavirus Pandemic (COVID-19) including information from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security on blood donation being permitted during Stay at Home directives. Click here for care provider and self-referrals for convalescent plasma donors for those that had a positive molecular test (also called PCR or polymerase chain reaction) and are fully recovered from COVID-19.  Email or call 833-610-1025 with questions.


TAC meetings help the Blood Center respond to issues our service hospitals have in common, and allow hospital representatives to gain insight into the products and services the Blood Center offers. The Blood Center also provides regulatory and process change information to the hospital transfusion services at these meetings.

TAC meetings are open to all staff members from our service hospitals. Hospitals may send more than one representative to the meetings, if desired. Participants are invited to submit questions and topics for discussion in advance of each meeting.
