LifeServe County Map

Did you know LifeServe Blood Center provides blood products to 161 hospitals primarily in Iowa, Nebraska and South Dakota? From Avera St. Anthony’s in O’Neill, NE to Mary Greeley Medical Center in Ames, IA, hospitals choose US to be their ONLY provider. Successful decades-long partnerships with these medical centers secured LifeServe a reputation as a trusted local blood center.

Your donation with LifeServe will help save your neighbor, a friend, family member or a stranger in your community! When donors donate with another blood collection organization within our community, their local donation does not support their local hospital. Only blood collected by LifeServe Blood Center is provided to our local hospitals. 

We need 200,000 community members to donate each year to ensure our local hospital patients have the blood products they need.
