Carter BloodCare is guided by the philosophy that community blood donations should benefit community patients, and that blood centers must be responsive to the community that supports them. Carter BloodCare's board of directors is made of local leaders, including medical professionals, hospital administrators, business and civic leaders. Our highest priority is meeting the needs of the community.
Who We Are
Carter BloodCare is a not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) organization that operates on behalf of patients and their loved ones in 54 Texas counties. Carter BloodCare was formed in 1998 through the merger of BloodCare in Dallas and Carter Blood Center located in Fort Worth. In April of 2007, Carter BloodCare announced a merger with Tyler-based Stewart Regional Blood Center. Carter BloodCare is Texas' largest blood center, providing more than 330,000 units of lifesaving blood components for patients annually.
Our main campus is located on 16.5-acres in Bedford, near DFW Airport. The facility is equipped to store, process, and test all blood components locally before distribution. The testing laboratory, operated by Blood Systems Laboratories, is one of the most advanced in the nation.
