Your Community Blood Program

The Blood Center of New Jersey was established in 1947 as the Essex County Blood Bank. We began operations in two rooms in Newark City Hospital (presently UMDNJ-University Hospital). Today, our administrative and medical departments are headquartered at 45 South Grove Street in East Orange, New Jersey. Here, blood collected throughout northern and central New Jersey is processed, tested, and stored for hospital patients' needs. We are open 24 hours a day for blood needs by our hospitals. Our donor centers are located in West Orange and Parsippany, and blood drives are held in civic, community, and corporate settings daily.

As the blood center increased its services and programs, the Essex County Blood Bank became known as the North Jersey Blood Center in 1975, and as The Blood Center of New Jersey in 1996.

The Blood Center of New Jersey supplies over 100,000 blood products annually to the hospitals and medical centers of New Jersey.  The Board of Trustees is comprised of physicians and surgeons specializing in varied disciplines, and business and community leaders.

 

Mission Statement

The mission of The Blood Center of New Jersey is to serve the patients, physicians, hospitals and medical centers in New Jersey by providing the safest, most technologically advanced blood and blood products of the highest quality.  We will adhere to the highest possible medical and technical standards, maintain licensure with the federal and state regulatory agencies, and accreditation by the American Association of Blood Banks.  We will promote and encourage blood donation by volunteer donors as a vital civic responsibility and advance the knowledge of transfusion medicine through educational programs.

 

Vision Statement

The vision of The Blood Center of New Jersey is to be a state-wide blood center providing blood, blood products and hemotherapy services in a coordinated effort with the integrate delivery system of healthcare providers in the state.  This will be accomplished in the most cost-effective manner at the highest quality levels.
