We Are Blood will open a brick-and-mortar donor center in Cedar Park. The location is expected to open in April 2022.

Donor centers make whole blood and platelet donations more convenient and accessible with regular center hours, said Nick Canedo, We Are Blood's vice president of community engagement.


The donor center will open at 251 N. Bell Blvd., Ste. 111A, Cedar Park. Three more donor centers are located on Mays Street in Round Rock, on North Lamar Boulevard in Austin and on Slaughter Lane in South Austin.

Canedo said a donor center location is coming to Cedar Park because of area growth and past success at blood drives in Cedar Park and Leander. Additionally, there is a growing number of health facilities in the area including the nearby Dell Children’s hospital under construction. https://weareblood.org
