Brooklyn/Staten Island Blood Services Announces New Hours For

Staten Island Donor Center



October 23, 2008, Staten Island, NY – Brooklyn/Staten Island Blood Services, a division of New York Blood Center is adjusting the donor hours at its fixed donation site. The Center will now be closed on Thursdays and open for extended hours on Tuesdays.



“In the years since the Staten Island Donor Center we have seen the “shelf life” of blood platelet products go from five days to seven days and now back to five days,” says Marc K. Bertman, Executive Director of Brooklyn/Staten Island Blood Services. “Because blood platelets expire so quickly it is important that we collect them strategically and at the right time. Platelet products that are collected on Thursdays are available for distribution to hospitals on Saturdays,” explains Bertman. “Because most hospitals prefer to transfuse patients earlier in the week, we need to collect these platelets earlier in the week.”



The new schedule for the donor center is as follows



Staten Island Donor Center

2791 Richmond Avenue

(corner of Platinum Ave; above Tuxedo World)
Staten Island, NY 10314

718-477-5473



Monday, Wednesday 12:30pm – 7:30pm

Tuesday 9:30am – 8:30pm

Saturday and Sunday 8:30am – 2:30pm





Brooklyn/Staten Island Blood Services, a division of New York Blood Center, is responsible for the collection, processing, testing and distribution of blood and blood products to the 23 hospitals in its service area.



Thank you for your help in letting Staten Island residents know about the change in hours. We appreciate your support!
