We are community

We are community

  • Carter BloodCare is the largest community blood center in Texas.

  • We are a not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) organization:

    • Licensed by the Food and Drug Administration

    • Accredited by the AABB, and

    • A member of America’s Blood Centers

Our philosophy

Our philosophy

  • Carter BloodCare is guided by the philosophy that community blood donations should benefit community patients, and that blood centers must be responsive to the community that supports them.

3


What we do

What we do

  • We partner with local volunteer blood donors within north, central and east Texas to provide the gift of life to patients in need.

  • We collect, process, test, store and distribute blood products to hospitals and healthcare facilities that are located in the communities where we host blood drives.

4


Why we do it

Why we do it

  • Every 90 seconds someone in the Carter BloodCare service area needs blood.

  • Daily, 600 to 800 people in our community will need a blood transfusion to survive.

  • 38% of the total population is eligible to give blood at any given time, but less than 4% actually does.

  • Every pint of blood can help save at least three lives because it can be processed into: red cells, plasma, and platelets.

How blood donors save lives

How blood donors save lives

  • Blood is made up of three main components. Each component serves different functions and allows one unit of blood to help several patients.

    • Red cells – help trauma patients and those undergoing heart bypass or organ transplant surgery.

    • Plasma – replaces the blood volume lost by a burn victim or the victim of a trauma accident.

    • Platelets – involved in blood clotting; also critical in the treatment of cancer and leukemia.
