About Us

A Tradition of Community Service

Founded in 1953, Community Blood Services (CBS) is a not-for-profit organization devoted to serving the community’s transfusion medicine needs.


Open 24 hours a day, CBS provides blood and blood products to 26 hospitals and medical centers in Bergen, Passaic, Morris, Essex and Hudson counties in New Jersey, as well as Rockland and Orange counties in New York.

More than one million units of blood have been collected by CBS from volunteer donors and tested, processed and distributed to area hospitals to be used in vital medical procedures.

CBS is a member of the American Association of Blood Banks and a candidate for membership in the Foundation for the Accreditation of Hematopoietic Cell Therapy (FAHCT).


Our Mission:

To serve the community --its patients, physicians and hospitals-- with the safest and highest quality transfusion products and services;

To assure the safety of the blood supply and the donors we service through the highest level of integrity and professionalism and utilization of the maximum technical standards on all aspects of our daily operations.
