Hospitals with On-Premises Blood Centers 5
The Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center, the Montefiore Medical Center, and the Maimonides Medical Center are among the hospitals in the United States that have their own blood centers. We have completed the attached spreadsheet, rows 42-51, columns A to E with ten hospitals along with the requested information on each. Some of our findings have also been listed below.
Maimonides Medical Center
- Address: 4802 Tenth Avenue, Administration Building — 3rd Floor, Brooklyn, NY 11219
- Phone: 718-283-7657
Hunterdon Medical Center
Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center
We commenced our research into additional hospitals with their own blood centers by using Google Maps to identify blood centers within each state we were focused on. While this approach provided hospitals with their own blood centers, most were already entered in the spreadsheet. Our next strategy was to examine organizations concerned with health in general and those concerned with accrediting and approving blood donor centers; these organizations include the Federal Drugs Administration and the AABB. The FDA had a list of "Establishments Granted Approval for a Variance to 21CFR640.3(d) and 21CFR640.3(f)" but this list was not exhaustive. The AABB's blood bank locator also proved limiting in the sense that the results from using the tool also included blood banks, which made sieving through the results difficult.
Our next strategy was to use business directories, specifically Yelp and Yellow Pages to identify blood donor centers within different locations. While both platforms provided different lists, most times, either the hospitals had already been listed in the spreadsheet, or are centers owned or ran by the Red Cross or other third-party providers. Another strategy we employed was to conduct a press search of blood donation drives at hospitals in each state, as hospitals occasionally publish press releases to encourage high turn up at their blood drives. This strategy also proved useful across some states.
We also looked through job search platforms such as Indeed, ZipRecruiter and Monster because donor centers post job vacancies on these platforms. This approach also provided useful results in some states. Lastly, we perused local non-profit organization focused on blood-related issues, including donations and transfusions, but this approach did not provide useful results as these non-profits typically partner with the Red Cross.
These strategies were employed for each state, starting with California, before skipping to other states in the order of priority stipulated until we were able to provide ten hospitals with their own blood donation centers. This way, we were satisfied that we had exhausted all research strategies before moving on to the next states. Hospitals who house third-party blood donation centers were excluded from our list.
