Bloodworks Northwest is an independent, non-profit organization harnessing donor gifts to provide a safe, lifesaving blood supply to more than 90 Northwest hospitals. Patients depend on us. Our physicians are specialists in transfusion medicine, and provide care for patients with bleeding disorders and other conditions. Our labs offer diverse testing services to support organ and tissue transplantation as well as patient care. Our research institute makes scientific breakthroughs to help people live longer and healthier lives – locally, and around the world. Backed by more than 70 years of history (and previously known as Puget Sound Blood Center) we are a cornerstone of healthcare in the Northwest.
With the help of 230,000 registered donors and volunteers in the region, Bloodworks collects about 800 units of blood each day. All blood receives immediate, comprehensive testing so that it can be available to more than 90 regional hospitals – usually in less than 24 hours after donation. We operate 12 donor centers and our mobile units travel to hundreds of blood drives every month at work sites, schools, places of worship, and other community locations throughout Western Washington.
