Buffalo, NY-Since beginning blood collections in 2007, Unyts has become the primary supplier of blood products for Kaleida Health, ECMC, and all the hospitals in Niagara and Wyoming Counties. The savings to WNY hospitals exceeds 5 million dollars. This savings leads to improved patient care and better efficiency for the medical community. Our local hospitals need an adequate supply for emergency situations and it is up to Unyts’ Community Blood Service and the generosity of our donors to help provide safe levels of inventory.
Blood collection in Tonawanda has now moved from DeGraff Hospital to 96 Niagara Street.
