Arkansas Blood Institute has a rich history that has grown with medical advances as more services are offered to the health care providers we serve than ever before. Our accomplishments and today’s scope of work would astound our founders.
Although true to its beginnings and fundamental principles, in January 2010, our leadership chose to refine the mission statement to better reflect our uniquely local, life-saving purpose.
Arkansas Blood Institute‘s Mission
To be the donor-to-patient lifelines; providing our communities and medical partners security by meeting transfusion and health care needs.
