November 5, 2018 ─ Arkansas Blood Institute is in serious need of O-negative blood donors.  We currently have less than a one-day supply to serve patients in area hospitals.

Arkansas Blood Institute provides blood to more than 40 of our state’s medical facilities.  O-negative blood is the universal blood type, meaning it can be given to a patient with any blood type.  It is especially necessary in an emergency situation or when blood type is unknown.

Arkansas Blood Institute is urging donors to give blood at an Arkansas Blood Institute donor center location or a mobile blood drives.

Arkansas Blood Institute is your local, independent, non-profit blood center.
