Hoxworth issues urgent appeal for blood donations
June 2, 2020
Hoxworth is not taking walk-in donors at this time--appointments are required to manage flow of donors and adhere to social distancing protocols.
Hoxworth Blood Center is actively investigating the use of convalescent plasma for the treatment of severe COVID-19 infection. Hoxworth is seeking individuals who have had COVID-19 and have been symptom free for at least 28 days to donate plasma.
Hoxworth Blood Center, an internationally-recognized leader in transfusion medicine, was founded in 1938 and is the second oldest blood bank in the country. Hoxworth serves more than 30 area hospitals and medical centers and collects more than 90,000 units of blood products to help save the lives of patients in area hospitals.
Hoxworth Blood Center serves over 30 hospitals in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana, providing blood and service to the entire region while remaining self-sufficient and financially sound.
As a division of the University of Cincinnati as well as a trusted partner of University of Cincinnati Medical Center and Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, Hoxworth promotes and supports research to help save lives.
Hoxworth’s patient services division improves the health of individuals through services such as Therapeutic Apheresis, Red Blood Cell Exchange and Photopheresis
I am so thankful that there are amazing, selfless, lifesaving heroes out there that are willing to donate their blood. Without these donations, I wouldn’t be here to celebrate life’s many tiny miracles.
