The #1 reason people give blood: to help others
And every day Bloodworks Northwest makes it possible. This year more than 200,000 people in our community will donate blood. Because of your generosity we are able to serve more than 90 hospitals in across the Northwest. Each year Bloodworks helps over 55,000 patients receive lifesaving transfusions.
Bloodworks Research Institute has developed methods and treatments that revolutionized transfusion medicine:
- Improving transfusion therapy in treatment for trauma and burns
- Enhancing hemophilia care, adding up to 30 years to patients’ lives
- Improved therapies and extended lives for people with Sickle cell disease and other blood disorders.
- Storing platelets to enable bone-marrow stem cell transplants as well as open heart surgery
