Celebrating Blood Collectors Week
Vitalant’s Donor Care team serves on the frontlines, working directly with donors and collecting the vital products that patients need.
The Association for the Advancement of Blood and Biotherapies and Fresenius Kabi have declared Sept. 4-10, 2022, as Blood Collectors Week.
We’re proud of all the blood collectors belonging to the Vitalant family.
Recognizing Vitalant’s Nurses on National Nurses Day
National Nurses Day on May 6 celebrates those continuing to live the legacy of Florence Nightingale, the mother of modern nursing whose sanitary care efforts reduced Crimean War death rates from 42% to 2%. Nurses have always played a vital role in health care, but the past two years of facing the COVID-19 pandemic have brought the stories of these frontline heroes to the forefront. We're proud of all the nurses belonging to the Vitalant family and their roles supporting donors, patients, and the hospitals we serve.
Honoring Women in Leadership
International Women’s Day on March 8 celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women around the globe. Here at Vitalant, we’re fortunate to have many strong female leaders helping us fulfill our lifesaving mission, inspiring others to be their best and serving our donors, customers and employees with compassion and dedication.
