Giving Blood Helps Our Community

Blood donations with Lee Health Blood Center remain in our four acute care hospitals — Cape Coral Hospital, Gulf Coast Medical Center, HealthPark Medical Center and Lee Memorial Hospital, which houses the only Trauma Center within a five-county radius.

Blood also benefits patients at our specialty hospitals — Golisano Children's Hospital of Southwest Florida, the Rehabilitation Hospital, Regional Cancer Center and Lee Health Coconut Point.

The blood used for patient care has to be continuously replenished to maintain a constant blood supply.

For questions or to schedule a visit at a Lee Health Blood Donation Center, please call 239-343-2333

What are the benefits of donating blood?

Each donation can save the life of a person with leukemia, cancer, or anemia, and those undergoing surgery for illness or injury. Your donation will help ensure an adequate supply for both children and adults who are patients within Lee Health.

How does the blood donation process work?

Following registration, you will answer simple medical history questions and receive a mini-physical. You will then be seated in a comfortable chair while you donate.

How long does the process take?

The entire life-saving process takes approximately 45 minutes. The actual donation time is only 5-10 minutes. Needles and bags used to collect blood are used only once and discarded, which makes the spread of infection to the donor not possible.

Did you know that every time you donate blood, you receive a mini-physical at no cost? At our blood centers, you will be checked for the following:

  • Pulse rate
  • Blood pressure
  • Body temperature
  • Hemoglobin level
  • Blood type and cholesterol level upon successful donation

Donating blood helps more than one person

Just a single pint of blood can help save the lives of several people. Your donation can be separated into its different components; the platelets may go to a child with leukemia, the plasma to a patient with a clotting problem, and the red blood cells to an accident victim. Whole blood donations are processed into a variety of blood components.
