Blood Donor Center

Blood Donor Center

One way to help kids at OLOL Children’s Hospital is to give the gift of life.


Every three seconds, someone is in need of blood. Our Lady of the Lake's Blood Donor Center serves the community by providing a safe and adequate supply of blood. More than 60 percent of the blood transfused in the entire local community is recruited, collected, tested and distributed by Our Lady of the Lake.


The Blood Donor Center relies on volunteer donors for our blood supply. These donors do more than give blood-they play a key role in the healthcare process, giving the doctors and nurses in our area a tool that helps save lives.


Learn more about blood donation, its importance, and how you can give by visiting the Blood Donor Center page on Our Lady of the Lake’s website.
