Who benefits from blood donation?

At Versiti Blood Center of Illinois, formerly Heartland Blood Centers, we never forget the patients who receive the blood we collect. Every unit of blood is collected from volunteer donors who meet specific criteria and have been screened according to strict guidelines. Every unit (pint) is collected, transported, tested and stored according to tightly-controlled procedures.

Examples of transfusion needs are:

  • Cancer: up to 8 units/month
  • Bone Marrow Transplant: up to 2 units/day
  • Liver Transplant: up to 100 units
  • Auto Accident: up to 50 units
  • Cardiovascular Surgery: 2-25 units
