Although our season may be delayed, the need for blood never takes a break. Our partners at Hoxworth Blood Center are asking eligible donors to schedule donations in the coming weeks and months to maintain a stable blood supply for local patients. Hoxworth Blood Center is the second oldest blood bank in the country and serves more than 30 hospitals and medical centers.

Hoxworth is not taking walk-in donors at this time. Appointments are required to manage the flow of donors and adhere to social distancing protocols. Blood donation continues to be a safe and sterile process, and Hoxworth is taking extra precautions to protect the health and safety of donors. To determine if you are an eligible donor, click here.
