Carter BloodCare is on a mission to save lives by making transfusion possible.
Local patients are helped by McKinney and Collin County residents who step up to donate blood, platelets or plasma with Carter BloodCare. We provide lifesaving transfusion resources to more than 200 medical facilities across more than 50 counties in North, Central and East Texas. Each year, Carter BloodCare supplies more than 440,000 units to meet patients’ treatment requirements.
They include accident and severe trauma patients, people undergoing cancer treatments, mothers experiencing difficult childbirths, older adults with age-related health issues, children with anemia, and many others. For every single unit of donated whole blood, the lives of three neighbors in need can be saved.
Whole blood can be donated every 56 days, double red cells every 112 days, plasma every four weeks, and platelets every two weeks.
Carter BloodCare's McKinney Donor Center is located at 2950 Craig Dr., Ste. 102, on the northwest corner of Eldorado Parkway and Craig Drive, one block west of U.S. 75. The center accepts whole blood, double red cell, plasma and platelet donations.
Along with Carter BloodCare’s ongoing mobile blood drives across North Texas, the McKinney Donor Center provides residents with a convenient location to help neighbors in urgent need of blood transfusions.
