  • The blood used for tragic events and trauma incidents comes from what is currently on the shelf at MEDIC Regional Blood Center.
  • It takes three days for donated blood to be tested, processed and ready for distribution to local hospitals.
  • MEDIC Regional Blood Center is the provider for blood and blood-related products for 25 hospitals in 22 counties.
  • Blood donated in our service area stays in our service.
