CHOC Blood Bank

CHOC relies on volunteer blood donors like you, your friends, neighbors and co-workers to meet the needs of our patients. Every time our volunteers donate, they leave knowing they are having direct impact on the recovery of a child. Your blood donation gives children a better chance at a healthy life.

With the support of our community we have been able to supply 50 percent of our patients’ needs for blood transfusions, a percentage that we would love to increase. Donor recruitment is always challenging and we want to assure our blood and platelet inventory remains robust. Please call the Blood Donor Center at 714-509-8339 to make an appointment.

Same day appointments are often available and walk-ins are always welcome.
