an integrated blood organization
Blood Innovations is a partnership of four blood centers;
Northern California Community Blood Bank in Eureka,
Medical School Blood Center
in Palo Alto
Bank of the Redwoods
in Santa Rosa
This network of Northern California blood centers has a unique
mission - the preservation of "community blood based
programs". This program supports actions to safeguard
and promote each blood center independently as well as collectively.
Blood Innovations partners share many resources, including
blood resources, human resources, medical and technical expertise,
testing, program development and sometimes blood donors.
This innovative approach, thus the partnerships name, ensures
that the partner blood centers can and will be able to meet
the challenges of blood banking and healthcare while provinding
a safe and readily avvailable blood supply that meets the
demands of the community's hospitals and patients.
