Close to 60,000 units of blood and blood components are required each year for patient treatment and care at Cedars-Sinai and the Samuel Oschin Comprehensive Cancer Institute, Heart Institute, Emergency Department, Transplant Services and related facilities.
To help fill that need, Cedars-Sinai is home to a state-of-the-art blood donation facility that has 13 comfortable donor chairs – seven of which are e-chairs that allow donors to watch television, movies and surf the Internet while they give.
Cedars-Sinai also has two mobile units for collecting blood that bring the donation facility to you. If you are interested in partnering with our facility to host a blood drive, please contact us.
