NYU Langone Medical Center
The NYU Blood Center is located at 317 East 34th Street, on the 8th Floor.(between 1st and 2nd Avenues)
Patients who may require blood during their hospitalization have two donation options:
Anyone over 17 years of age in good health may donate. A history of hepatitis, jaundice, heart disease, or exposure to AIDS will disqualify the donor. Most cancer survivors (except melanoma, lymphomas, leukemia, and Hodgkin's Disease) are eligible to donate after 2 years' remission.
If you are a blood donor from the Ukraine and have been deferred in the past, you may now be eligible to donate. Call the NYU Blood Center (phone number above) for details.
Requirements for autologous donation vary. Most medications are allowed.
The staff at the Blood Donor Center will be happy to answer any questions.
Eligible volunteer donors receive a small token of appreciation.
