Transfusion Medicine and Blood Centre

The Transfusion Medicine and Blood Centre at Ivy Hospital plays a critical role in ensuring a safe and sufficient blood supply for medical treatments, surgeries, and emergencies. Comprising skilled transfusion medicine specialists, technologists, and support staff, this department focuses on blood collection, processing, testing, and storage, adhering to the highest standards of safety and quality.
The primary function of the Transfusion Medicine and Blood Centre is to collect donated blood from voluntary donors, screen it for various blood-borne infections, separate it into its components (such as red blood cells, plasma, and platelets), and store these components under optimal conditions. These blood components are then made available for patients in need, including those undergoing surgeries, cancer treatments, trauma care, and other medical interventions.
In addition to routine blood collection, the Transfusion Medicine and Blood Centre at Ivy Hospital actively engages in organizing blood donation drives and awareness campaigns to encourage voluntary blood donation within the community. This ensures a constant and diverse blood supply, contributing to the overall well-being of the population.
