All blood transfused in hospitals comes from volunteer blood donors. Blood donations take less than an hour and can help save up to three patients.

In order to sustain our patients and their needs, we need donors to boost the inventory of all blood types so we can continue to provide our hospitals with the life-saving blood components our patients need.  Summer months are difficult with high school donors on summer break and families taking vacations with families.  Check the current inventory levels below for your blood type and make time to donate to make a difference for local patients in need.

To make your appointment to donate blood or to learn more, please call 1-866-BLOODSAVES or visit inovablood.org
