About Lifeblood

Lifeblood is the Memphis region’s only non-profit volunteer blood center, dedicated to meeting the needs of patients, healthcare facilities, medical professionals and the community at large by building exceptional relationships between volunteer donors and Lifeblood’s caring employees. Every year Lifeblood supplies more than 100,000 units of blood and blood products for local patient transfusion.

Because Memphis is the eighth largest medical center in the United States and hosts the second busiest trauma center in the nation at The Med, the need for blood is constant. Unfortunately, over one-third of the local blood supply is currently being imported from other volunteer blood centers throughout the country.

Lifeblood’s goal is to eliminate the dependence on other communities. Through neighborhood donor centers and a full schedule of mobile blood drives, Lifeblood makes it easy and convenient to donate blood throughout the year.
