Blood Drives

Passavant Area Hospital is proud to partner with the Central Illinois Community Blood Center (CICBC) to host numerous blood drives throughout the year.

Donating blood is safe and easy. All blood donated at Passavant  goes to patients in central Illinois needing blood transfusions.

According to the CICBC website, you must be 17 years old, weigh 110 pounds and be in good health to donate blood. To determine if you are eligible to donate, you will be asked to answer donor screening questions, have a confidential evaluation of your responses and an evaluation of your vital signs.

The Blood Center is at Passavant on the first and second Monday of each month from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. New donors are always welcome and all blood types are needed. For additional information, visit the Central Illinois Community Blood Center website or call the Blood Center, 217-753-1530.
