Welcome to the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, Blood Donor Center website. As part of the Armed Services Blood Program (ASBP),the official United States military blood program, your donation serves as a vital link to military service members and their families worldwide.

Your selfless support of the Armed Services Blood Program helps keep our military service members and their families healthy, and help bring our fellow service members home.

The Fort Belvoir Community Hospital Blood Donor Center has been closed permanently, effective immediately, due to consolidation and staff realignment. This closure will not affect the quality of services or the quality of blood products provided by the Fort Belvoir Community Hospital. Blood products for Fort Belvoir Community Hospital patients will continue to be provided by the Armed Services Blood Bank Center at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. Patients undergoing therapeutic phlebotomies or autologous donations will now be collected at the Pentagon Donor Center (2 forms of identification are required) or at WRNMMC

Mobile blood drives on Fort Belvoir will continue as scheduled. Opportunities will still exist for local blood donors to support the Armed Services Blood Program. Blood drives can be found online at www.militarydonor.com and searching by zip code or you may contact Donna Onwona, mobile operations donor recruiter, at 202.294.6674 or donna.onwona.civ@health.mil for more information or help finding blood donation opportunities.
