Blood Drives

This is a critical time for us as we work together to serve our community in the midst of COVID-19 and its devastating effects. There is no substitute for the lifesaving gift of blood. It is precious. It is perishable. 

Spectrum Health Lakeland hosts blood drives throughout various locations in Southwest Michigan. Spectrum Health Lakeland proudly uses Versiti to host our blood drives. 

If you are healthy and asymptomatic, please consider donating blood. We encourage you to make an appointment at a Versiti donation center or community drive. Thank you in advance for making an appointment to donate.
