COVID-19 Update

Donors needed! Hoxworth donor centers are currently open with added safety precautions to protect the health of donors and staff. Public health officials have designated blood donation as an essential act and an exception to the “Stay at Home” Order.

Hoxworth Blood Center

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.

Saving Lives

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.
