Voluntary Health Service – Blood Bank

VHS hospital meets the health care needs of the poor and middle class based on their clinical needs and not based on their ability to pay for services. The idea of a non-commercial blood bank run purely on voluntary blood donation was conceived by VHS in 1962, and it started working in 1963 with voluntary blood donors. Over the years, the Blood Bank has widened its scope of activities by supplying quality and safe blood to other hospitals as well. The Blood Bank also organizes blood donation camps at various locations, which has greatly helped in meeting the continuous demand for quality blood from VHS and the other hospitals. The VHS Blood Bank has been the only transfusion service unit doing Rh typing for all donors and recipients from its very inception and, in Chennai, is the only organization which still does investigations for immunological causes of haemolytic diseases of the new born.
