This morning, Indiana Blood Center could not fill hospital orders for O negative blood and has less than a one-day supply. We issued an urgent plea to our donors and need your help alerting the community.
O negative blood is considered the universal blood type and can be transfused into any patient. About 7% of the U.S. population has O negative blood.
To meet the needs of hospital patients in our community we are asking Hoosiers to make a life-saving blood donation today.
Donors can call 317.915.5150 to schedule an appointment or visit www.indianablood.org/locations
to find donor center locations and hours.
It takes 550 donors every day to maintain a sufficient blood supply for the patients and hospitals served by Indiana Blood Center. Our seven donor centers are open Monday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and all centers except Terre Haute are open Tuesday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Thank you for your consideration.
