Blood Donor Services

Mary Greeley Medical Center offers blood donor services in Ames in partnership with LifeServe Blood Center.

Blood donated to the LifeServe Blood Center location at Mary Greeley Medical Center is used for the medical center's patients as often as possible.

LifeServe Blood Center manages the donor process, from recruiting and scheduling donors to collecting blood. Services are provided in the blood donor room at Mary Greeley Medical Center. Flexible donor hours are available, as well as community-based blood drives.

The Blood Center of Iowa joined operations with Siouxland Community Blood Bank in April, 2010 to become LifeServe Blood Center.  As one of the 15th largest blood centers in the country, LifeServe Blood Center provides blood and blood products to more than 90 hospitals located across Iowa, Nebraska and South Dakota.  LifeServe is committed to providing premier service to volunteer blood donors and access to a safe, quality blood supply for hospitals and patients.  Eligible blood donors must be at least 16 years old, should weigh at least 120 pounds and should be in general good health.
