Message from the CEO

Our tagline is: Live Local. Give Local.

And that means something to us.

Kentucky Blood Center is the place where donors come to support local patients while giving back to their community.

When someone gives blood at one of our donor centers or blood drives, they are helping a Kentucky patient because blood donated with us stays in Kentucky.

We are headquartered in Lexington but have donor centers and blood drives throughout the region. We offer Kentuckians the opportunity to conveniently give blood near where they live, work or worship.

As the largest FDA-licensed blood bank in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, all 240 staff members take our mission of saving lives very seriously.
