Welcome to Hendrick Regional Blood Center. Please click below to schedule your blood donation appointment. Thank you for donating with us, we are looking forward to seeing you.
Our goal at Hendrick Regional Blood Center is to ensure your comfort and safety during the donation process. Most people feel fine after giving blood. A unit of blood is less than a pint, and the average adult body contains 10 – 12 pints of blood. Your body makes new blood constantly, and the fluid you give will be replaced within hours.
At least 17 years of age (age 16 may donate with written parental consent). There is no upper age limit.

– Eat a low-fat, high protein meal within 2 – 4 hours before your donation.
– Drink plenty of non-caffeinated beverages, such as water or juice to help your body replenish lost fluids.
– Avoid alcohol before and after giving.
– Do not fast.
Strenuous activity should be avoided for 12 hours after giving. If you have a hazardous or strenuous job, you should give at the end of your work shift.
Taking medications is not an automatic deferral. Most medications are acceptable. Foreign travel or residence does not automatically prevent you from donating. Please call the donor center supervisor at 325-670-2880 for questions regarding medications and foreign travel. You can also email email@example.com.
If you have questions regarding travel, medications or your next donation date, email Freddie Sosa Jr. at firstname.lastname@example.org.
