Blood Bank Needs O-negative

The Garth Englund Blood Donation Center in Fort Collins is in critical need of type O-negative blood.

The center is at 1025 Pennock Place, two blocks north of Poudre Valley Hospital just off Lemay Avenue.

The donated blood is used for surgical and blood transfusion patients at the Medical Center of the Rockies and Poudre Valley Hospital.

According to the Poudre Valley Hospital Website:

  • The donation process takes about 45 minutes. This includes the time needed to fill out health history and consent forms. The actual drawing of blood — a pint — takes five to 10 minutes.
  • To donate, a person must be at least 18 years old (or 17 with a parent’s permission) and show a photo identification. New donors must weigh at least 120 pounds and be in good health. Prior donors must weigh at least 110 pounds.
  • Other regulations exist. These concern major illnesses, pregnancy, traveling out of the U.S., and other issues. Please check these other regulations.
