Canadian Blood Services to open plasma donation site in Kelowna


Canadian Blood Services will open plasma donation centres in three provinces to help meet the needs of Canadian patients.

One of those centres will be right here in Kelowna.

The others in Sudbury and Lethbridge.

Kelowna was chosen because they scored high on criteria such as the size of the volunteer donor base as well as other demographic factors.

Sudbury is scheduled to open first with collections underway by spring 2020, followed by Lethbridge in the fall and Kelowna in spring 2021.
