Carter BloodCare offers tours, scheduled in advance, for schools, civic and community groups. The tours are conducted during business hours, Monday through Friday. Priority is given to those organizations that conduct blood drives with Carter BloodCare or who are interested in doing so.
Tour participants must be at least 15 years old; groups are limited to 40 at one time; and the optimal time for touring is between the hours of noon and 4 p.m. To request a tour contact your blood drive consultant, or contact Public Relations at (817) 412-5314.
Carter BloodCare experts can speak to your professional or civic group. Topics include, but are not limited to: the blood center’s role in the community health care system; what happens to your blood after it is collected; and why should I consider donating blood in my community. To request a speaker, contact Public Relations at (817) 412-5314.

Starting a little over a year ago, mobile drives out in the community were no longer the only way to donate blood in Rockwall. In June 2020, Carter BloodCare opened a donor center in this thriving city east of Dallas. The Rockwall center had two inaugural milestones: it was Carter BloodCare’s first to begin operations in the middle of a pandemic and the first to be designed specifically with social distancing in mind.

For new donors, it can all come down to the “stick.”
“What actually happens with the needle is very important,” said Site Supervisor Ricky Wingham with Carter BloodCare’s Rosedale Donor Center in Fort Worth. “The experience they have – that it’s a really good donor experience – is one of the main things that will help people get over their fears and come back.”
Fortunately, their arms are in good hands with the Rosedale team.

As the saying goes, one key to success is location, location, location, and Carter BloodCare’s Preston Valley Donor Center is in prime territory.
On the busy southwest corner of I-635/LBJ Freeway and Preston Road in North Dallas, the Preston Valley location typically processes 20 to 30 donors a day, with a weekly average of more than 120 donors.
The more important drivers of success, however, are the people who power the donor center.
