SARASOTA, Fla. – On February 14, 1949 the Lower West Coast Blood Bank, founded by O.K. Fike and Dr. Millard White, opened its doors. Now known as SunCoast Blood Bank (SCBB), although the name has changed, the guiding principles of remaining an independent non-profit, local health-care provider, governed by a local board and local management has remained intact. For 65 years, tens of thousands of dedicated volunteers have provided the critical, life-saving gift of blood and platelets to our local hospitals and patients. In 1949, the blood bank collected 551 pints of blood, now called “units.” Today, SCBB must collect almost 47,000 units of blood and platelets to meet the needs of local patients. SCBB operates five donor centers, and more than 1,300 blood drives are held annually in our community. The success of the organization rests completely on the generosity of volunteer donors.
