Blood Assurance provides three types of phlebotomy services to healthcare facilities and their patients. Please note, we only process special donations requests on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please allow a minimum of one week from initial submission for processing and scheduling.

Therapeutic Phlebotomy

Certain blood-related illnesses, such as hemochromatosis and polycythemia, require that a patient have a prescribed amount of blood drawn for medical purposes. A physician’s order must be completed in advance and an appointment is required. Medical personnel can find the required Request for Therapeutic Phlebotomy by clicking this link or in the downloads section on the Hospital Page.

Autologous Donation

In certain circumstances, a patient who will be undergoing a medical procedure such as surgery in the near future may be asked by their physician to donate some of their own blood to be transfused back into them if necessary. A physician’s order must be completed in advance and an appointment is required. Medical personnel can find the required Special Donations Request Form by clicking this link or in the downloads section on the Hospital Page.

Directed Donation

The doctor and patient may identify a compatible blood donor from the patient’s family or friends and at the patient’s request, that donor can designate their blood donation to be used specifically for that patient. A physician’s order must be completed in advance and an appointment is required. Medical personnel can find the required Special Donations Request Form by clicking this link or in the downloads section on the Hospital Page.
