Donating blood is simple and safe. On average, the total donation process takes about 30-45 minutes. During each donation, one pint of blood is collected.
Blood can be donated every eight weeks per Food and Drug Administration regulations to allow the body enough time to regenerate red cells.
It is important to note that there is some risk of iron deficiency associated with regular blood donation. For this reason, the Baylor Scott & White Blood Center encourages our donors to replace the iron that is lost during donation – this can be achieved through a healthy diet of iron rich foods, or through iron supplementation (we recommend consulting your healthcare provider before starting an iron supplementation regimen). Healthy donors are the only source for a robust community blood supply!
Platelet, plasma and dual red cell donations are collected through a single needle using an apheresis machine, which centrifuges — or spins — the blood to separate the blood components. The machine then collects the platelets, plasma or red cells and returns all other blood components back to the donor in cycles.
Our friendly technicians will provide you with a personal television and a comfortable chair to relax in while you donate. Donation length varies by donation type and individual donor.
For more information about platelet, plasma and dual red cell donations or to schedule an appointment, call 254.724.2933.

Blood donation is a safe, FDA regulated activity. A person cannot contract HIV/AIDS from donating blood.

The safety of our donors and patients is our top priority at the Baylor Scott & White Blood Center.
