Virginia Blood Services to become part of the American Red Cross

Browse General

Blood Systems has signed an agreement which will begin the process of transferringVirginia Blood Services, a Blood Systems blood center, tothe American Red Cross.

We  will work diligently to ensure the needs of the communities served continue to be met during this transition, and we are committed to making this a smooth transition with access to lifesaving blood products for hospitals and their patients in the communities served. Blood donors can count on the same professional and personal experience they’ve come to expect.

Communities throughout Virginia and beyond have demonstrated decades of support for Virginia Blood Services and the patients we serve. We encourage your continued support during the transition and far into the future.

Virginia Blood Services will continue normal operations until the Red Cross formally assumes operations, which is expected to be in early November 2018.

We look forward to seeing you soon. If you have any questions, please email us at
