Stanford Blood Center (SBC) is a community blood center with a global impact. We connect local donors to local patients while advancing research through support, education and innovation. At SBC, our work truly matters — what we do saves lives of hundreds of people every single day. It doesn’t get more fulfilling than that!
Connecting our communities to provide hope for healing.
We lead the fields of transfusion and transplantation medicine by advancing science and technology. We provide hope for the future by teaching the medical leaders of tomorrow. We enhance lives by connecting donors to patients every day.
Our team members are energetic, team-players who are focused on helping others. At SBC, we place a high premium on team interaction, so we value good communicators and problem-solvers who enjoy working in a collaborative environment. We love the flexible, fast-paced nature of our work; no single day is the same, so we are constantly learning. We are professionals who are also dedicated to serving our community.
Our Blood Donors
We have the honor to build relationships with literal “life savers.” Our blood donors mean so much to us – many of them have been with us for years, and they genuinely feel like family. In fact, our donors are often our best ambassadors. The bond we build with them is priceless, and we cannot thank them enough for the life-saving gifts they continue to give.
