Closure of Penn Medicine Blood Donation Center

The Blood Donation Center closed on Friday, June 26, 2015.

The nursing staff will continue to accommodate autologous donations for patients wanting to donate their own blood before surgery and for other clinical procedures, and these will continue to be accommodated in the Apheresis Clinic. We will be working with the American Red Cross to facilitate patients who want their family members to provide directed blood donations as well as providing options for employees wanting to donate on a regular basis.

We would like to thank all the Penn Medicine faculty, students, staff, friends, and family members who have been supporting the Donation Center since its inception in 2009. Your donations have made a difference to many patients at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania and the Perelman Center for Advance Medicine.
