Blood Services
I promise to…save lives

• Mission
The mission of the LRC Blood Transfusion Services (BTS) is to ensure self-sufficiency in terms of blood products throughout the Lebanese territory.
Assuring a regular supply of safe blood products, through blood component collection, processing and testing, is the goal of LRC BTS.

• History
The Blood Transfusion Services started in 1964 with the opening of the first Blood Bank in Beirut. The expansion has taken place over the last 40 years (1964-2011) as more LRC Blood Transfusion Services were opened. Today 12 LRC Blood Transfusion Services exist in the six governorates of Lebanon.

Blood can be donated at the LRC BTS, as well as during the occasional blood drives of the LRC. Blood collected through mobile blood drives is transported back to the LRC branches. All blood components are then distributed to health establishments to be transfused to patients.

All the 12 blood transfusion centers carry out the same function: blood collection, component preparation, blood testing/screening and blood issuing. Additionally, the blood transfusion center at the LRC headquarters on Spears in Beirut performs radiation services.
The 12 branches are all connected through software and the stock is shared by all branches, meaning blood units can be transported to patients in need. A staff with diverse specialization and technical skills is available to provide adequate service. Quality management is the focus of BTS centers practice.
