Be a hero to your neighborhood! Give blood. Save lives.
Did you know one blood donation could save three lives?
Your blood supports patients at multiple hospitals in northern Colorado: Poudre Valley Hospital, Medical Center of the Rockies, Greeley Hospital, Longs Peak Hospital, and Estes Park Medical Center.
Are you blood type A? B? Maybe AB or O? It doesn’t matter what blood type you are (or if you even know your blood type).
All types of blood are valuable, and all can help save lives.
Blood donor eligibility
To donate blood, you must be at least 18 years old (or 17 with a parent’s permission) and show photo identification. New blood donors must weigh at least 120 pounds and be in good health. Prior donors must weigh at least 110 pounds with no complications during previous donations, and feel well and healthy.
If you were instructed by your doctor to donate for your health, please contact the Donor Center at the number above so we can assist with your therapeutic phlebotomy needs.
