New Blood Center In Lufkin

Everytime you donate blood you can save three lives and it is now even more convenient.

The Blood Center opened a much-needed facility in Lufkin. With the top-notch care at East Texas hospitals, there are more and more surgeries performed everyday, which means there has been an increase in the amount of blood needed.

Bill Teague, the CEO with the Blood Center, said, "The primary blood that people give has gone up 6% and the need for the platelets has gone up 33%."

The new Lufkin facility is located by the Brookshire Brothers on Frank Street.
