If you are a donor, volunteer, recipient or just
interested to know more about our Centers or blood
donations in general, you've come to the right place.
Blood Centers is an independent not-for- profit blood
center serving 49 hospitals in a 12 county area
including Kane, McHenry, DeKalb, Will, DuPage, Cook,
Grundy, Kendall, Lee, Ogle and LaSalle counties in
Illinois, and Lake county in Indiana. We operate under a
volunteer donor system. Heartland works toward
collecting more than 200,000 units of blood annually.
Blood Centers' first commitment is always to meet local
blood needs. Hosting a drive with Heartland means that
100% of blood donated is returned to the communities
served by Heartland. As part of our participation in a
nationwide resource sharing program, Heartland Blood
Centers stands ready to assist other parts of the
country during severe blood shortages, national
emergencies and increased demands by the armed services.
