UNC REX Engages The Blood Connection
After more than five decades of providing its own blood services, UNC REX engaged The Blood Connection (TBC), another not-for-profit community-based blood center, to supply blood and blood products to UNC REX patients who need them.
TBC intends to supplement its existing donor operations in the community for the time being in the same location as Rex Blood Services’ current center on Blue Ridge Road.
TBC has plans to open another donation facility on Glenwood Avenue near Crabtree Valley Mall, and add four bloodmobiles to support blood collection in our community. The Blood Connection will ensure that a safe, adequate blood supply continues to be readily available for patients at UNC REX Healthcare and in the community.
There is no substitute for human blood. Thank you for continuing to give the gift of life.
