The Blood Center - East Texas

The Nacogdoches Neighborhood Donor Center features three donor screening rooms and four collection beds, with whole blood and automated collection technology to maximize the benefit of your donations.


Therapeutic Phlebotomy

If you are required to have blood drawn as a form of treatment (polycythemia or porphyria cutanea tarda), you may visit any Neighborhood Donor Center on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays for the procedure.

As of July 6, 2016, a fee of $150 is required per therapeutic phlebotomy. This fee does not apply to those with a diagnosis of hereditary hemochromatosis or secondary polycythemia due to testosterone replacement therapy, since in some cases these units may be used for transfusion to patients. The fee also does not apply to patients with Medicare or Medicaid coverage.

The therapeutic request form must be completed by your doctor and faxed to (713) 790-1782 at least 72 hours prior to the first collection. Incomplete or illegible orders will not be accepted.
