Construction for a new location of We Are Blood in Cedar Park is underway, and the donor center is anticipated to open in mid-June.

We Are Blood is the provider of blood and platelets to over 40 hospitals for 10 counties in the Central Texas area. The blood bank has three other locations in the Greater Austin area in Round Rock, on North Lamar Boulevard and in South Austin.

Nick Canedo, We Are Blood's vice president of community engagement, told Community Impact Newspaper that a donor center is opening in Cedar Park because of the growth in the area and past success of blood drives in Cedar Park and Leander.

The new We Are Blood Cedar Park location will be at 251 N. Bell Blvd., Ste. 111A, Cedar Park.
