Each year more than 16,000 pints of blood are needed to meet the demands of our local hospitals. The Western Kentucky Regional Blood Center meets that demand by collaborating with area business, schools, churches, and civic organizations who sponsor volunteer blood drives and with the support of the faithful volunteer blood donors who visit our centers. Welcome to WKRBC.

Our services and facilities include:

  • Educational programs and health fair displays
  • Speakers for civic organizations and professional groups.
  • A state-of-the-art laboratory for testing and component preparation
  • A five-bed bloodmobile
  • The ability to hold internal blood drives at your facility or organization
  • Our main center at 3015 Old Hartford Road, Owensboro, KY and a sub-center located at 1902 South Virginia Street, Hopkinsville, KY
