Donating blood at PinnacleHealth is a quick, safe and easy way to help save lives.
Each day, patients at Central Pennsylvania hospitals use between 275 and 300 units of blood and blood products. One pint of your life-saving blood can help to heal wounds, fight infections or replenish the blood supply of another person in your community.
To be eligible to donate blood, you must:
- Be at least 16 years old
- Weigh more than 110 pounds
- Be in good health
- Successfully complete a brief screening interview
- Successfully pass a mini physical exam
Blood donation takes approximately 30 minutes. You can donate blood every eight weeks; all blood types are accepted.
