Blood Bank 

Having our own blood bank facilitates and safeguards our patients’ life in critical and/or in emergency condition in the hospital. Therefore, Hospital San Javier provides this associated service to inpatients and outpatients who need it, thus encouraging an altruistic donation culture that is essential for a blood bank to work.
