Donate Blood

Blood Donation Center donor room
You may donate blood every 56 days.

The need for blood affects us all. Nine out of every 10 people will need a blood transfusion at some point in their life. A constant supply of blood is necessary for the life-saving treatments needed by many patients here at the University of Chicago Medicine.

For those who are able, donating blood is a simple, meaningful way to give back and to help support our patients.

As a small token of appreciation, we invite our donors to choose a food court coupon, an AMC movie ticket or free parking validation.

Directed Donor Program
At the University of Chicago Medicine Blood Donation Center, you can even donate specifically to a family member or friend. Just provide the recipient's name, and our staff will coordinate the delivery of your blood donation to that individual.
