Save lives.  Donate blood.

The Regional Blood Donor Center is coordinated by The UVM Health Network - Champlain Valley Physicians Hospital, and relies on the generosity of people like you.

The blood we collect - at the Blood Donor Center and at blood drives throughout the region - provides more than 95% of the blood used at CVPH and is used to supply other hospitals in Elizabethtown, Malone, Massena, Saranac Lake and Glens Falls.


Our Commitment to Safety

  • Our staff is committed to safety - for our donors and recipients of the blood:
  • We're accredited by the AABB, the national accrediting agency that oversees blood banking.  
  • The blood and blood products processed by the North Country Regional Blood Center meet or exceed all national standards for safety and quality.
  • The pre-screening questions and standards that our donors must adhere to, the policies and protocols used in collecting the donations and the testing and processing carried out prior to making the blood available are the same as adhered to by the American Red Cross and other accredited programs. 


Blood Donor Facts

  • The North Country Regional Blood Donor Center draws from nearly 9,000 donors on average per year.
  • As of 2014, 15 whole blood donors have over 100 donations.  Of this group, ages range from 40-75, with one individual donating 183 times (that's almost 23 gallons of blood).
  • Volunteer donors provide nearly all blood used for transfusions in the United States.  The donors' body replenishes the fluid lost from donation in 24 hours.  It can take up to two months to replace the lost red blood cells. 
  • Whole blood can be donated once every eight weeks.
  • Platelet products can be donated through a process called apheresis.
  • Anyone in good general health, over 16 years old  and meeting criteria, may donate blood.
