Winter Haven Hospital Community Blood Center, an affiliate of BayCare Health Systems, solely supplies Winter Haven Hospital, Winter Haven Women’s Hospital and Lake Wales Medical Center with life-saving blood products. When a donor gives the gift of life at the WHHCBC or on the bloodmobiles, he or she is helping to ensure adequate levels of blood products are available in area hospitals and ready for local patients, friends or family who suddenly need them.

We’re members of Blood Centers of America, a group of 50 independent blood centers that supply 50 percent of the country’s blood. We subscribe to a community-based blood banking philosophy. That means community donors know that the blood they give stays in our community first — helping family members, friends and neighbors. Excess supply is shared with other communities when needed.

Our vision is to build and strengthen the bonds of our community.
