Decades of experience and high-level expertise in blood collection, testing, logistics, distribution, special services and research propel Vitalant forward to advance the experience, practice and application of transfusion medicine. Simply put, we are the conduit that connects people with their lifesaving potential.
As trusted stewards of the blood supply, we focus our efforts every single day on making sure enough blood is available for patients when and where they need it. With help from our amazing blood donors and blood drive host organizations, we provide the necessary blood components that loved ones need to survive, heal and overcome: perhaps platelets to battle leukemia, red cells to recover from surgery or plasma to control bleeding.
Many of our locations offer therapeutic apheresis procedures and stem cell processing to support patients being treated for iron overload syndromes, auto-immune diseases and cancer, among other conditions. Our medical team works hand-in-hand with physicians to map out a treatment plan for their patients. And, our knowledgeable staff performs these special collections right at the hospital or at our donation centers.
