Our History of Saving Lives
As a non-profit organization, the Community Blood Bank has been providing a safe, reliable supply of volunteer blood to patients in need since 1966. The Community Blood Bank of NWPA &WNY supplies blood and blood products to 19 hospitals and 7 Stat MedEvac bases throughout Northwest Pennsylvania and Western New York.
The Community Blood Bank is dedicated to providing an adequate supply of blood for all patients seeking medical services from our partner hospitals in Northwest Pennsylvania and Western New York.
Advances in medical knowledge and technology make giving blood safe. Potential donors are thoroughly screened and given a physical examination. This involves completing a Donor History Questionnaire and having a member of the Collections Team check your pulse, blood pressure, temperature and hemoglobin. Materials used in blood collections are sterile and never re-used.
