Blood Types Needed - Current Levels
Every three seconds in the United States, someone needs blood.
It is no wonder that one of the biggest health care crisis facing the nation today is the availability of blood and blood products when they are needed.
At Penrose-St. Francis Blood Bank, we transfuse more than 10,000 blood products each year. In order to meet the needs of our patients, we must collect 170-200 units every week. So, the need for blood donations is on-going. Blood cannot be manufactured, duplicated or produced outside of the human body. It can only be obtained through the volunteer efforts of healthy donors willing to give of themselves for the benefit of others.
