Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center
Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center is the only blood provider to Houston and its surrounding communities 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
We are one of the largest community blood centers in the United States, serving 26 counties across the Texas Gulf Coast, Brazos Valley and East Texas, and we serve more than 170 hospitals and health care institutions. Our facilities include Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center East Texas as well as Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center of Brazos Valley.
As a nonprofit, the patients and donors we serve are at the heart of everything we do. We continuously ensure our donors have an incredible experience while saving lives in our community. From personal TVs to blankets and snacks, we aim to keep our donors comfortable and happy. Every donor is a hero to us and the families you impact each time you give blood.
To meet the community's needs, we need about 1,000 donations a day, and all blood donors in the U.S. must be unpaid volunteers. Those units of blood are a vital lifeline for Houston’s health care industry and are used in surgeries, cancer treatments and various medical procedures.
