We are committed to meeting the blood supply needs of these hospitals by providing the highest quality blood components and services. LifeSouth is a community blood center, meaning the blood supply collected from our donors directly serves the needs of patients in our community. The blood donated here will stay here for local patient transfusions.
Each year, nearly five million Americans need a blood transfusion. To meet our responsibility, we need to collect 266,000 blood donations a year. That’s 728 donors a day.
With over 30 donor centers, 44 blood mobiles and over 2,000 blood drives a month, our LifeSouth team is committed to making sure the blood is there when you or your family member is in need. We are your community blood center. The blood supply collected from our donors directly serves the needs of patients at over 100 medical facilities throughout our footprint. The blood donated here will stay in our community for local patient transfusion. Only if our local supply is met will LifeSouth share our blood resources with other communities. – less
