"The Need for Blood Donations"

Despite miraculous advancements in medicine, there is no substitute for human blood. The need for blood products can occur in persons of all ages, from premature infants to the elderly. Management of illnesses that strike the elderly often requires extensive blood product support. With an aging population, the demand for blood products is likely to increase. An important component of many medical and surgical treatments is the highly specialized blood products collected by LifeSource. A stable blood supply is vital at all times to ensure excellence in the delivery of healthcare in our region.

LifeSource is responsible for donor recruitment, blood collection, component manufacturing, testing and product management in our region.


LifeSource must see 1000 donors each day to ensure an adequate blood supply for area patients in need of transfusions in the hospitals we service.
