BloodSource Celebrates 20 Years in Roseville

BloodSource celebrates 20 years of saving lives with Roseville blood donors with a Community Open House on Thursday, January 13, 2011 from 4:30 pm – 6:30 pm at 151 N. Sunrise Ave., Suite 1011. BloodSource opened its Roseville center in January of 1991 to meet the needs of a thriving community. As Roseville has grown, so has the need for BloodSource to provide blood and blood components to area medical facilities that now includes specialty care at a Level II trauma center, cancer centers, neonatal units, cardiac centers and more.

Becky Cheshire, Satellite Manager at Roseville since 2006, speaks highly of the Roseville blood donor community. “Roseville and the regional community here support blood donation for ongoing local needs and to help across the nation when needed, such as during recent snowstorms on the East Coast hampering blood collection efforts or when certain blood type donations are needed like the current need for Type O – negative donors.”

Roseville center blood donors will be automatically entered into weekly drawings for various items during the month of January as the twentieth-year anniversary begins.

BloodSource is the blood provider for 40 hospitals in Northern and Central California including major medical centers in Roseville and Sacramento, serving 25 inland counties with a population of over five million people from Merced north to the Oregon border and Vacaville east to Lake Tahoe. The need for blood is constant, helping patients through burn injuries and cancer treatments, childbirth complications and prematurity, traumatic injuries and cardiac surgeries. BloodSource strives to collect 700 pints of blood daily.

The BloodSource center in Roseville also serves donors from surrounding areas, including Rocklin, Granite Bay, Loomis, and Lincoln. Please visit the BloodSource website at http://www.bloodsource.org/ or call 866.822.5663 if there are questions about blood donation or registering for Be The Match marrow registry.
