Memorial University Medical Center (MUMC) partners with The Blood Alliance to provide life-saving blood for the Savannah region. The Blood Alliance is a non-profit community blood bank that serves regions in Georgia, South Carolina, and northeast Florida.
All of the blood collected in the Savannah region stays right here at MUMC. It is used almost as quickly as it is collected. A single car accident victim may use 50 units of blood in just a few hours. In fact, up to three lives can be saved with one pint of whole blood. A steady supply of blood is also needed for children and adults receiving cancer treatment, surgery, transfusions, and numerous other medical procedures at MUMC. The need is great and on-going. Please consider giving today.
A donation center is located on the MUMC campus at 4700 Waters Avenue, Savannah, Georgia. The donation center is located to the left of the main entrance, near the Medical Center Pharmacy.

Types of Blood Donation
There are different types of blood donation, and each type is important. You can donate whole blood every eight weeks. Apheresis and plateletpheresis (explained below) can be done more often. For the comfort of our donors, we provide wireless Internet access, television programs, and movies to watch during the giving process.
