San Diego Blood Bank’s Coastal Donor Center Moving

By   /  August 22, 2015  /  No Comments



San Diego Blood Bank’s Coastal Donor Center prepares for exciting growth opportunities in Vista.

The new, larger donor center is located at 1910 Via Centre in Vista across the 78 freeway…just a short distance from the old site. Donors will enjoy a décor that will provide a relaxing and tranquil atmosphere with beach tones and textures. Donors will also appreciate ample convenient parking.  Construction begins on August 27th with a Grand Opening planned for Saturday,  November 14, 2015.

All donor hours of operation will remain the same until Tuesday, November 10th, when we will close early at 4 pm to prepare for the move. The center will remain closed until Thursday, November 12th.  A mobile unit will be available (exact locations to be announced) on Wednesday and Thursday to keep your donation schedule intact.

About Us History  -In December 1950 the San Diego Blood Bank was established through the support of the San Diego County Medical Society.  The foresight and dedication of founding fathers Dr. Thomas O’Connell and Dr. Frederick G. Hollander, led us to the San Diego Blood Bank of today, an organization known for excellence in its service to our community.


Prominent San Diegans have taken pride in the San Diego Blood Bank from its earliest beginnings.  Mary Mulvey, R.N., Dr. Edward Levy, Jonas Salk, Allan Klauber, Neil Morgan, John Quimby, William Stephens, Sr., Legler Benbough, Dr. J.B. Askew, Mayor Harley Knox and Councilman Charles C. Dail are among those who supported it during its first two decades.
