On January 27, 2012 three of Florida’s independent, not-for-profit blood centers, Community Blood Centers of Florida, Inc. (CBCF), Florida’s Blood Centers, Inc. (FBC) and Florida Blood Services, Inc. (FBS) came together in a merger of equals and OneBlood, Inc. was established.
More than a year of collaboration and extensive planning among the three organizations led to the creation of OneBlood—an innovative, forward-thinking blood center that we envision leading the industry in providing safe, available and affordable blood to our hospital partners and their patients.
As a community asset, the OneBlood name is a constant reminder of the collective power we share to save another person’s life.
The service area of OneBlood includes the Tampa Bay area, South and Southeast Florida, the Orlando-metro area and surrounding Central Florida counties, parts of Southwest Florida, Pensacola and Tallahassee and some parts of Southern Georgia and Alabama.
OneBlood currently serves more than 200 hospitals and health care facilities.
