Cascade Regional Blood Services is your community blood center.

We have supplied blood to MultiCare Health System hospitals and health centers in Pierce and South King Counties since 1946. Along with supplying blood and blood products to our community, we also perform specialty therapeutic procedures.

CRBS is a member of national organizations Blood Centers of America and America’s Blood Centers, which provide us additional resources and support.

Blood Donors Save Lives

Someone needs blood every two seconds in the United States. The only way to get the blood needed is from a volunteer blood donor. Here are some stories about how blood donors save lives.

In September 2014, Serina Clark became severely ill at work and was taken to Tacoma General Hospital. She was admitted to the hospital with a rare and life-threatening blood disorder called “Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia Purpura” (TTP). She was in the hospital for 5 weeks and underwent a series of Therapeutic Plasma Exchanges conducted by CRBS nurses while hospitalized. Serina is a true testament as to how blood donors truly do save lives. In this video, Serina and Jeannie Neilsen share her journey back to health.

In May 2012, shortly before graduating from Cascade Christian High School, Sarah was in a near-fatal car accident. This is the story of how blood donors saved her life.

Bob, an active member of the Pierce County community, began to experience chest pains at work on Sept. 15, 2011. He quickly found himself at St. Clare Hospital receiving treatment for a ruptured aorta. While his family prayed and waited, Bob underwent hours of surgery. During two surgeries that lasted more than 21 hours, Bob received 42 units of blood. This is the story of how blood donors saved his life.

After five years of marriage, Laura and Pat Jenkins were expecting their first child. While giving birth to their daughter, Dawn, Laura required 10 units of O-Negative blood. With the blood supplied by CRBS and the expertise of the staff at St. Joseph Hospital, Laura survived.

Pat, Laura and Dawn currently live in Puyallup. She and her family are extremely grateful to their community for helping save her life. See her story here.

Mary Young, a busy wife, mother and grandmother, went to the doctor in 2005 for a routine exam. She was not expecting that exam to turn into a diagnosis of multiple myeloma, cancer of the plasma cells. As part of her treatment, Cascade Regional Blood Center collected, processed and stored her healthy peripheral blood stem cells for transfusion. Mary received a stem cell transplant to infuse healthy cells into the body with the goal of those cells overtaking and replacing the damaged cells, along with blood transfusions as part of her treatment. This is her story.

Blake Rogers was born at St. Francis Hospital on September 29, 2009 with transposition of the great arteries. At four days old, he underwent open-heart surgery at MultiCare Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital & Health Center, and received units of baby blood that CRBS collected especially for him from special baby blood donors. Here is his story.
