Even as coronavirus (COVID-19) spreads across the United States and globally, the need for blood donations remains. Learn more about why blood donations are essential, the time requirement and how you can schedule an appointment.
Children’s National Hospital established the Edward J. Miller, Sr., Blood Donor Center in 1990 to support the need for blood and blood products at the hospital. As the number of patients treated at Children’s National continues to grow, the need for blood donations becomes greater than ever. Your blood can help premature babies, trauma survivors, patients that need surgery or those with sickle cell, cancer or a blood disorder.
To schedule a donation appointment and/or host a blood drive, call 202-476-5437. For urgent assistance outside of business hours, please call 202-476-5000.
