The mission of Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center is to provide world-class blood products and services to communities in need.
Formed in 1974, Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center (MVRBC) is an independent, not-for-profit organization that plays an integral role in the community's health. MVRBC has reliably served the regional and national community for over 30 years, collecting more than 180,000 units annually in Iowa, Illinois, Wisconsin, and Missouri.
MVRBC is community-based and wholly dependent on blood collections from volunteer donors. Once local needs are met, MVRBC assists a national network of community blood centers through a resource-sharing program. Licensed by the US Food & Drug Administration and accredited by the American Association of Blood Banks, MVRBC is a member of America's Blood Centers, North America's largest network of nonprofit community centers, which collects half of the US blood supply.
