NJABBP Blood Center Partners in NJ and NY

The Central Jersey Blood Center (CJBC) was founded more than 40 years ago with a vision to provide an adequate, high quality and safe supply of blood, blood products and other related services to meet the needs of area hospitals. With three blood donor centers in New Jersey, our organization has grown into one of the premier blood centers of NJ. 

Established in 1964, New York Blood Center (NYBC) is one of the largest community based, nonprofit blood collection and distribution organizations in the United States. Through the integrated efforts of our blood services operations, NYBC annually provides some one million blood components to nearly 200 hospitals throughout New York City, New Jersey, Hudson Valley, Long Island, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania.

CBCNJ has been providing blood support in this region since 1966. Our organization is a not for profit 501 (c)(3), governed by an all-volunteer Board of Trustees.  We adhere to the Standards of the American Association of Blood Banks. In addition, we are registered with the Clinical Laboratory Improvements Amendments (CLIA) (#31D0695903).

Community Blood Services has been devoted to serving our community’s transfusion medicine needs for more than 60 years. With the help of our volunteer donors and donor groups our non-profit organization collects life-giving blood and blood products to distribute to hospitals in New Jersey and New York. Our vision is to inspire hope for patients and their families in the communities we serve and to personify our slogan – “Life Shared, Life Saved.” We provide life-saving blood and blood products to hospitals in New Jersey and New York, bone marrow registration and donor services, and public and private umbilical cord blood collection and storage. Our New Jersey Cord Blood Bank is the only public cord blood bank for the State of New Jersey.

American Red Cross Biomedical Services plays a critical role in our nation’s health care system. It is the largest single supplier of blood and blood products in the United States, collecting and processing approximately 40 percent of the blood supply and distributing it to about 2,600 hospitals and transfusion centers nationwide. The Red Cross also plays a leading role in protecting the safety of donors and patients and increasing the availability of blood. It has been among the first to help develop and implement testing for infectious diseases and is frequently the single major contributor to clinical trials to improve blood safety. Providing life-saving blood and blood products to patients is a key component of the Red Cross mission to help people in times of emergency and disasters.
