Southern California Blood Bank (So Cal Blood Bank) is a division of San Diego Blood Bank, an independent, 501(c)(3) nonprofit blood bank that serves hospitals in San Diego, Orange, Imperial, and Los Angeles counties with blood transfusion products and reference laboratory services.
So Cal Blood Bank is part of a vital group of nonprofit blood banks dedicated to community health and works to ensure the well-being of patients of all ages, socio-economic, and ethnic backgrounds throughout Southern California by providing a reliable supply of blood to patients in need. Our vision is to further ensure the health of our community through research.
For decades, San Diego Blood Bank has serviced hospitals in Orange, Imperial, and Los Angeles Counties, operating as Southern California Blood Bank. Mobile blood drives at Hoag Medical Center in Newport Beach and a traveling So Cal Blood Bank bloodmobile have helped save the lives of thousands of patients each year from Los Angeles to the San Diego International Border.
The Blood Bank partners with regional hospitals to provide a steady blood inventory and deliver blood products 24/7 for traumas, surgeries, emergencies, and more. To meet the growing demand for blood products in Orange and Los Angeles County hospitals, San Diego Blood Bank opened its first permanent donation location in Irvine—Irvine Business District—on January 4, 2022, under the name Southern California Blood Bank. This new facility welcomes first-time and returning donors to give blood, platelets, and plasma.
