Solvita Blood Center in urgent need of Type O blood


DAYTON – The Solvita Blood Center (formerly Community Blood Center) has issued a community alert for an urgent need of type O blood due to high usage for several trauma cases in area hospitals over the weekend.

Solvita is in critical need of type O negative and in low supply of type O positive. Hospitals used 269 units of type O blood and multiple other blood products Saturday and Sunday, primarily for a motorcycle accident injury and two other emergency surgeries.

Solvita entered the weekend still recovering from no collections on the Labor Day holiday and low supply during the holiday week. Solvita is calling on community members to donate this week to help replenish the regional blood supply.

Make an appointment to donate at, call 937-461-3220, or use the Donor Time app. Walk-ins are welcome at the Solvita Donation Center, 349 S. Main St., Dayton.
