Your community needs you Rockets fans!

The Houston area has seen a sharp increase in local red blood cell demand. Hospitals have resumed nonessential surgeries, and patients throughout the Houston area are resuming treatment options. Blood and blood components are used during these surgeries and some treatments to keep people alive. There is no substitute for blood. Donating blood saves many lives! When you give blood, it stays in our community for patients in 170 area hospitals. It can help your neighbor, a coworker, or a family member.

Houston Rockets and Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center invite you to become a real MVP by donating blood at the Blood Drive on Wednesday, December, 15, sponsored by Memorial Hermann.

Be a hero. Save lives. Schedule your appointment today!

Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center will end its COVID-19 antibody testing on December 31, 2021.

For a limited time, Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center will test all blood donations for the COVID-19 antibody in addition to our standard testing. To view the results, donors can access their Digital Donor account approximately 7 days post-donation. The donation must be successful to receive COVID-19 antibody results. This test is authorized by the FDA to detect the presence of antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 and is not intended to diagnose COVID-19.  This test does not detect vaccine-related immunity.
