Hendrick Regional Blood Center to close southside draw station, Aug. 30

Hendrick Regional Blood Center will close its draw station located inside Hendrick Medical Plaza on Buffalo Gap Road on Aug. 30.

“Thank you to our loyal blood donors who donated at our southside location,” said Amanda Wherry, coordinator for Hendrick Regional Laboratory and Blood Center. “Every donation saves lives in our community, and we appreciate our donors continued dedication to our mission.”

The draw station is closing as a result of lower than expected donor visits, as well as space needs for additional Hendrick services in Hendrick Medical Plaza. The closing will not affect other Blood Center services.

Additionally, Hendrick Regional Blood Center has plans to expand its services with a move to a larger facility at the end of the year. 

“We are excited for our next chapter at our new location on Pine Street,” said Wherry. “The new facility will allow us to better serve our community of donors.”
