The SSM Health SSM Health Saint Louis University Hospital Blood Bank is registered with the Food and Drug Administration. It is staffed around the clock by specially trained medical technologists and technicians.

Our staff is committed to teaching Allied Health students, medical students, residents and fellows. Based on the individual's interests and needs, time learning with our team will be spent acquiring basic blood bank technical knowledge, as well as gaining experience on a busy transfusion service. Physicians-in-training are an integral part of the team, serving as the primary liaison between the blood bank and patient services.
