    Methodist Partnering With NCBB for Blood Products

    With holiday blood drives starting up, metro-area residents will be seeing more of the mostly blue bloodmobiles operated by a Lincoln-based blood supplier.

    Nebraska Medicine and Methodist Health System in October announced that they’d selected the Nebraska Community Blood Bank to supply most of the blood that their patients need under a new three-year contract. Previously, both had received most of their blood products from the American Red Cross.

    Wendy Capetz, the Nebraska blood bank’s marketing director, said the organization has been holding some blood drives in Omaha and providing specialty products to Nebraska Medicine for about five years.

    The group will now supply five area hospitals: all Nebraska Medicine and Methodist hospitals in Omaha, Bellevue and Council Bluffs. Through Methodist, it also will supply Children’s Hospital & Medical Center.
