Blood Donor Center

  • Blood Donor Center

    Your donation of whole blood or platelets can save up to three lives and will directly support Anne Arundel Medical Center’s blood supply. Each year, 3,000 people benefit from our blood supply to heal and recover from conditions such as:

    • Anemia.
    • Bone and joint abnormalities.
    • Diagnosis associated with cancer, heart disease or gastrointestinal disease.
    • Fractures and trauma.
    • Lung, liver or kidney diseases.
    • Pregnancy.

    The process is simple, safe and requires less than an hour of your time. With each donation, you receive a mini-physical as an added benefit. We will take your blood pressure and temperature. We will also check your blood for your blood type, blood iron levels, cholesterol levels and even the presence of diseases like hepatitis, HIV, syphilis, chagas or West Nile.

    By giving blood, you’re helping your community. Our Blood Donor Center has been the “lifeblood” of the greater Annapolis and surrounding areas for more than 30 years.
