Armed Services Blood Bank Center Pacific Northwest


About

Armed Services Blood Bank Center-Pacific Northwest (ASBBC-PNW) is a tri-service organization that supports the blood requirements for four military hospitals. We also ship blood weekly, which is ultimately delivered overseas to areas with high concentrations of deployed troops.

The ASBBC-PNW wishes to thank our community for supporting the Armed Services Blood Program. Your donations have helped to ensure the high quality care our service members, retirees, family members and deployed troops richly deserve. However, the need for blood is constant. We urge people to become regular blood donors by continuing to donate throughout the upcoming weeks and months.

Please join the fight and help support our deployed soldiers by donating blood to the ASBBC-PNW. These donations are in direct support of our overseas deployments. We need our retirees and military family members to join this fight by donating blood and helping to ensure that our deployed warriors are supported with blood products.

Make an appointment with us by calling 253-968-1850 to donate blood.

The COVID-19 crisis is having an effect on blood collections and we need your help. Safety for donors and recipients is our highest priority. We have taken proactive measures to ensure the safety of our donors and staff:

  • Blood Drives donations are being scheduled by appointment only.
  • Social-distancing: Blood drive stations and chairs are now 6 feet apart.
  • Hand washing facilities and sanitizer are available for donors to use.
  • Accept only 10 people at a time into our facility, or blood drives, to include staff.
  • Although there have been no reported cases of donation/transfusion-transmitted coronavirus, donors are screened for temperatures at the time of arrival (deferred if greater than 99.5 F).
  • Cleaning and disinfecting donor beds after each donor.
  • Hours of operations: Monday – Friday, 8:40 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
