From the Executive Director

Anthony Roberts serves as the blood center’s executive director.

Thank you for visiting your Community Blood Center online!

CBCO is the exclusive provider of blood and blood products to over 40 hospitals in a 41-county area comprising Southwest Missouri, Northwest Arkansas and Southeast Kansas. More than 60,000 donations of blood are required each year to meet the transfusion needs of our friends and neighbors. We at CBCO take the responsibility of providing that blood very seriously.

Our mission states that we will achieve this goal in a timely manner, at the lowest reasonable fee, while remaining accountable to the local community, blood donors and health care providers. With your help, we can accomplish this goal each and every day.

Giving blood is the greatest thing you can do today, because it will make a difference tomorrow in the lives of your relatives, friends, and neighbors.  Here at you can find out all about our mission, our service region, the donation process and read uplifting stories of lives that have been saved right here in the Ozarks.  Community Blood Center of the Ozarks is your blood center, and this is your website.
