50 Years, 4 Million Lives
Lifeblood, a Blood Systems blood center, is the Memphis region’s only non-profit volunteer blood center, dedicated to meeting the needs of patients, healthcare facilities, medical professionals and the community by building exceptional relationships between volunteer donors and Lifeblood’s caring employees. Every year Lifeblood supplies more than 100,000 units of blood and blood products for local patient transfusion.
Because Memphis is the eighth largest medical center in the United States and hosts the second busiest trauma center in the nation at The Med, the need for blood is constant. Unfortunately, over one-third of our blood supply is currently being imported from other volunteer blood centers throughout the country.
Our goal is to eliminate the dependence on other communities. Through neighborhood donor centers and a full schedule of mobile blood drives, Lifeblood makes it easy and convenient to donate blood throughout the year.
