Since 1995, Community Blood Center of the Ozarks has met the transfusion needs of patients throughout the Ozarks. Each day, it takes more than 275 blood donations to meet the needs of patients in thirty-eight hospitals supplied by CBCO.
“Our mission is to provide a quality blood supply, in a timely manner, at the lowest reasonable fee, while remaining accountable to the local community, blood donors and health care providers.”
Recruiting enough donors to maintain an adequate blood supply for patients in the communities we serve is an ongoing effort. Patients at 38 hospitals served by the Community Blood Center of the Ozarks require more than 275 donations every day. Unfortunately, while 60 percent of the population is eligible to give blood, only 5 percent choose to do so.
