Be a hero to your neighborhood! Give blood. Save lives.
Did you know one blood donation could save three lives?
When you give blood at UCHealth Garth Englund Blood Center, the blood supplies Poudre Valley Hospital, Medical Center of the Rockies, Greeley Hospital and Longs Peak Hospital.
Before your donation
- Make sure you’ve eaten a good meal.
- When you enter the Garth Englund donation site, staff members will guide you through the process and answer your questions.
The donation process takes 30 to 45 minutes. This includes the time needed to fill out health history and consent forms.
The rest of the process includes having your vitals taken, and undergoing a finger-stick test called a hematocrit that checks your volume of red blood cells.
The actual drawing of blood – a pint – takes five to 10 minutes.
After your donation
- Rest for a short time.
- Enjoy a snack.
- Please fill out a reminder postcard for your next appointment. You can give blood once every 56 days (or eight weeks).
