About the Blood Donor Center

Donating blood is an easy, quick, safe way to save a life. Each and every day, hundreds of MGH patients require blood to help fight cancer, to replace what is lost in a trauma, or to treat a chronic disease.

Through the 60 years of medical and technical advances at the MGH Blood Donor Center, the one constant has been the need for blood donors. Nothing has replaced the need for generous individuals to roll up their sleeve and donate blood for patients in need.

Today the MGH Blood Donor Center provides the approximately 75,000 blood components necessary annually to transfuse patients at MGH and other nearby medical facilities. In addition to serving the patient population at MGH, we also provide blood and blood components to the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary, Shriners Burn Institute for Children, the Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital, and MassGeneral for Children. Blood is supplied by volunteer donors – people who realize the ongoing need for lifesaving blood.
