  • About This Location

    Types of Blood Donations Accepted

    Whole Blood Donation

    This most common type of blood donation is a good choice for the first-time donor. A blood donation appointment typically takes about 1 hour, and you can donate blood 6 times a year.

    Double Red Donation

    In this type of blood donation, you’ll donate half as often – but make twice the impact each time – by donating two units of oxygen-rich red blood cells for transfusion recipients and E.R. patients.

    Platelet Donation

    You can donate precious, perishable platelets for cancer warriors, premature babies and other patients in need. The process typically takes about 2 hours, but you can donate 24 times a year.

    Walk-ins Welcome?

    Yes! Appointments appreciated, walk-ins welcome.
