Blood Donations

Your baby may require one or many small blood transfusions. With the doctor's written order, your family or friends can donate blood to be given to your baby through Cedars-Sinai's "Directed Donor" program.

It takes at least 48 hours to test this blood to see if it is a good match for your baby. All donated blood, direct or not, is carefully screened. A blood donor recruiter can discuss the "Directed Donor" program with you. She may be contacted at (310) 423-2414. Blood donations can be made by calling the Cedars-Sinai Blood Donor Facility at (310) 423-5346 for an appointment. Any blood donations are greatly appreciated.

For more information on hours, locations, and donor eligibility, please visit the Cedars-Sinai Blood Donation Center.
