ImpactLife opens new blood donation center on Madison’s west side

MADISON, Wis. — A blood donation center celebrated a new location on Madison’s west side Tuesday with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

ImpactLife, which collects blood for local hospitals, marked the opening of its new location in the 7400 block of Mineral Point Road. Officials there said the event comes as they look ahead to what will likely be a decrease in donations because of the Memorial Day weekend and the first weeks of summer.

“Opening this donation center in Madison has been really important to us,” Amanda Hess from ImpactLife said. “We want to have a convenient location for donors to come and have a place that would be available multiple days a week.”

According to a news release, ImpactLife is the exclusive provider of blood components to more than a dozen hospitals in southern Wisconsin, including seven SSM Health hospitals. To learn more or to schedule an appointment to give blood, click here.
