Marsh Regional Blood Center has been the largest hometown supplier of blood and blood products in Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia for more than 60 years. Since establishing the region’s first independent blood bank in Kingsport, Tenn., in 1947, the mission of Marsh Regional has been to collect and maintain blood supplies to meet local needs. Through generous support from thousands of our family members, friends and neighbors, Marsh Regional has grown steadily and today supplies 19 medical facilities.
Marsh Regional annually collects, processes, stores and distributes thousands of units of blood and blood products for local use. In fact, Marsh Regional is the only blood center in this region collecting blood products and using them to supply so many local hospitals. We operate collection centers in Bristol and Kingsport, and our four bloodmobiles collect blood daily at locations around the area.
Marsh Regional Blood Center is a member of the American Association of Blood Banks and the Tennessee Association of Blood Banks and is a federally inspected and licensed blood center through the U.S. Food and Drug and Administration.
