Be a hero to your neighborhood! Give blood. Save lives.
Did you know one blood donation could save three lives? When you give blood at Garth Englund Blood Center, the blood supplies mutliple hospitals in northern Colorado: Poudre Valley Hospital, Medical Center of the Rockies, Greeley Hospital and Longs Peak Hospital.
Blood donation guidelines
To donate blood, a person must be at least 18 years old (or 17 with a parent’s permission) and show a 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 from previous donations.
Host a mobile blood drive
Over 80% of UCHealth blood products are the direct result of community-hosted blood drives.
Among the many organizations who have hosted a mobile blood drive are Hewlett Packard, Intel, and Colorado State University. Their willingness to host a blood drive contributed significantly to the patient care successes of our hospitals.
