The Institute for Transfusion MedicineSM (ITxMSM) is one of the nation's foremost organizations specializing in transfusion medicine and related services. For the past three decades, we have had the privilege of serving hundreds of thousands of people in the Pittsburgh, Chicago and Virginia regions who unselfishly give their lifesaving blood to help others.

In 2017, ITxM merged with Blood Systems. Based in Scottsdale, Arizona, Blood Systems is one of the oldest and largest non-profit community blood service providers in the country, serving more than 1,000 hospitals in 28 states from coast to coast.

The benefits of this collaboration are many, including sharing the breadth of Blood Systems’ offerings to hospitals and health systems in the northeast as well as bringing ITxM’s experience and expertise in centralized transfusion services, coagulation diagnostics and hemophilia patient services to Blood Systems’ customers around the country.

While blood collection is a fundamental part of our organization’s purpose, providing safe blood products to hospitals and, ultimately, patients in need is our primary goal. In fact, we distribute more than one million blood components each year to people not only in the communities we call home, but also across the country and even the world.

The hallmarks of our services are rapid turnaround coupled with expert diagnostic, consultative, and educational support for patients and physicians. By working closely with our health care provider partners to establish standards for transfusion decisions, we ensure that all patients receive the proper type and dosage of transfusion products.

We invite you to learn more about ITxM and our commitment to deliver world-class transfusion medicine services to you and your patients.
