Blood Donor Center

Without the generosity and commitment from donors like you, there would not be enough blood on the hospital shelves for the patients who so desperately need it. Lourdes Blood Center is grateful, and in turn, we have made a commitment to provide respect, safety convenience and confidentiality for all donors.

Although you and your family may never need blood, immediate access to safe blood will be available for you only if healthy people continue to give blood to maintain an adequate blood supply.

Lourdes Replacement Plan is a way you and others interested in helping can reduce an Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital bill or St. Mary's Imaging Center bill by donating blood. For every unit of blood donated as a replacement for someone (whether they receive blood or not) a $27.00 credit will be applied to their bill.

Lourdes Blood Center also has 3 mobile units fully equipped for blood collection at locations away from the hospital. If your business or group has an interest in conducting a blood drive, contact the Lourdes Blood Center at 337-470-4483.
