SunCoast Blood Centers (SCBC) is a local 501(c)3 nonprofit, best known for providing blood services to our community for 71 years. SCBC participates in research programs that create new vaccines and enhancing treatment therapies for patients. SCBC plays a large role in the treatment of cancer patients, and we constantly strive to discover newer, innovative approaches to transfusion medicine.
In March 2020, SCBC opened up a 25,000-square-foot facility in Lakewood Ranch, which features two new laboratories, a state-of-the-art donor facility designed to create a comfortable and pleasant experience for our donors.
SunCoast Blood Centers is on the frontlines of COVID-19, working 24/7 to provide Convalescent Plasma to the critically ill. Convalescent Plasma is a highly desired treatment recommended by physicians to combat the severe effects of COVID-19 and can only be donated by those who have recovered from the coronavirus.
When you donate at SunCoast, you not only save a life, but you save a family.
The success of SunCoast lies within its generous blood donors, as well as volunteers and financial supporters.
