Job Overview

Saving lives is no easy task, but at Hoxworth Blood Center, it’s what we do every day—and we’re looking for positive, professional individuals to join our team and help advance our lifesaving mission. If you're a detail-oriented individual with experience in customer service, an interest in the field of medicine, and a passion for making a difference in the lives of others, then we invite you to apply for a position at Hoxworth Blood Center.  

Hoxworth Blood Center is an independent community blood center under the umbrella of the University of Cincinnati and is the sole provider of blood products to more than 30 hospitals in Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana.  Currently, Hoxworth is actively hiring for the full-time position of Donor Care Assistant / Phlebotomist in our Donor Services department.  

This position requires friendly, patient, reliable individuals that will be responsible for taking vital signs, performing venipuncture, and providing post-donation care for our community of volunteer blood donors.  Experience in customer service and phlebotomy is preferred; excellent communication skills, a focus on quality, and the ability to work a flexible schedule are essential.   This position offers opportunities for career advancement, mentorship, and continued education.  

Additionally, Hoxworth employees receive a number of excellent benefits as part of their employment package, including health / life insurance, retirement benefits, paid time off, and tuition remission for the employee, their spouse, and dependents who attend the University of Cincinnati.  Most importantly, Hoxworth employees come to work every day with the knowledge that they are giving local patients much-needed relief from illness, a second chance at life, or more time to spend with their families.

“I work for Hoxworth because I get to save lives every day and to extend the lives of so many more, to give families more time to be together. Before my dad passed, he received blood on multiple occasions, which gave him a second chance and ultimately a little more time with our family to cherish. Blood products give hope—and that can only come from blood donors and the staff who collect and process those donations to send to patients who need blood to survive each and every day.”

-        Lori P., Donor Services Assistant Field Manager at Hoxworth Blood Center

“Being part of a team that provides lifesaving blood to those who are critically ill gives me a sense of pride. I am proud to tell people where I work and our commitment to our community. I knew I wanted to help people from a young age. I began this journey as an EMT and Firefighter; while at the fire department, I began working at Hoxworth collecting the blood to save the patients I had been transporting. It became clear that working here was where I needed to be.  I have been personally touched by our mission, as well, as my father's life was saved with platelets and red blood cells collected by Hoxworth as he fought cancer. My time at Hoxworth has been the most rewarding of my life!”
