Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center is excited to Help Save Lives in the Peoria area. As of March 1, 2019, MVRBC is the sole supplier of blood products to OSF St. Francis Medical Center, Peoria and other hospitals in the Peoria area. We are investing in your community by opening a Distribution Center (March 2019). Next we will begin mobile operations and hiring more Peoria residents. In the fall of 2020 we invested again and opened a donor center in Peoria. We need to collect whole blood and platelets in Peoria to help ensure a strong blood supply for the patients we serve.
