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