Since 1952, Indiana Blood Center has been connecting Indiana donors to Indiana hospital patients. Today, we provide blood components to more than 60 hospitals throughout the state.
The relationships we have built with local hospitals allow Indiana Blood Center to give back locally the 180,000 blood products we collect annually. We could not complete the transition from donor to patient without these hospitals.
Over the next few months we will be highlighting many of the hospitals we supply, sharing with you the contributions these hospitals provide to our community.
