Blood Donor Center

Every three seconds someone needs blood; perhaps one day that someone will be you or someone you love.  There is no substitute for human blood.  We must rely on the generosity of healthy individuals to maintain a steady blood supply. 

At Providence Saint John's Blood Donor Center, we strive to meet the transfusion needs of patients in the community with an emphasis on quality, cost-effectiveness and customer service. Our patients include trauma victims, those who suffer from diseases such as cancer, those undergoing surgical procedures, as well as premature babies.  In addition, maintaining a steady blood supply keeps us ready in the event of a disaster.

You can make a difference!

In the hour you might spend watching a television program about survivors, you could help someone become a survivor!

You can donate blood if:

The process to donate blood takes less than an hour (the actual donation time is less than 10 minutes).

In Return for Saving Lives, Our Donors Receive:

  • Gratification in knowing that they have contributed to the well-being of others.
  • A mini-health physical during which their blood pressure, pulse, temperature and hemoglobin level is checked.
  • A thank you letter from our grateful staff including the results of our donors' blood type and cholesterol level.
