Brookhaven National Laboratory – a legacy of caring…
Brookhaven National Laboratory has been organizing Blood Drives for the past thirty years. Our employees and guests have generously rolled up their sleeves to anonymously give of themselves to individuals in our Long Island Community. In partnership with the Long Island Blood Services (LIBS), a division of New York Blood Center, we encourage donations of life-giving blood to our friends, neighbors and families in dire need in hospitals throughout Nassau, Suffolk and Queens.
These hospitals require approximately 800 units of blood each day to meet routine needs. We take our role seriously; therefore supervisors and managers are fully supportive and encourage staff to participate in this vital process. We welcome you to our Blood Donation web site and invite you to take a few minutes to review the site, prior to scheduling your blood donation.
Many of you have been steadfast blood donors, and we, along with thousands
of unknown families, thank you for your selfless support. For those of you
who are contemplating donating blood for the first time we are sure you will
find that the joy of knowing that you have provided hope and health to
others, far outweighs the time and slight discomfort involved. Thank you for
your interest and hope to see you at our blood drives.
To be a blood donor you must:
Need a ride? Call the BNL Courtesy Van on extension 2714. The Van is available to transport you to and from the Brookhaven Center.
The next blood drive is scheduled for February 10, 2016 from 9:30 AM to 3:00 PM at the Brookhaven Center, Bldg.30.
No appointment is needed. Please call Patricia Edwards at x3665 if you have questions or concerns.
You give a very special gift of life by donating through platelet apheresis (ay-fer-ee-sis). Platelets are essential for blood clotting. They are routinely needed to support cancer therapy, open heart surgery, blood disorders and organ transplants. Platelets must be transfused within five days, requiring the supply to be constantly replenished. Because platelets are quickly replenished by your body, you can donate every 3 days, but no more than 24 times a year.
Please call 1-800-688-0900 to make an appointment at the following apheresis centers.
