Launching Summer 2023
We're actively preparing for new blood donation facility openings, and we plan to launch as immediately as possible.

Our blood donation process is simple, safe and efficient. We appreciate your contribution to saving lives.

Registration and Screening

Upon arrival, you'll fill out a questionnaire and show your ID. We'll then review your submission and perform a health screening.


After screening, you'll head to a private area where we'll collect your blood. The process takes about 10-15 minutes. You'll sit and relax while we draw blood.

Double Testing and Storage

After giving blood, we'll double screen your donation, label it and transport it to our state-of-the-art laboratory for processing and testing.

Nourishment and Renewal

Before leaving, you'll receive a snack and drink. You may experience mild dizziness or fatigue, so we recommend taking a few minutes to rest.
