Oklahoma Blood Institute

About Oklahoma Blood Institute

Oklahoma Blood Institute (OBI) is the sixth largest, non profit blood center in America.

OBI employs nearly 900 Oklahomans and works with 1,000 volunteers and 2,600 blood drive coordinators. Blood needed by patients in more than 161 medical facilities in Oklahoma is provided by donors with OBI. This includes exclusive service for every hospital in the metro-OKC area. More than 125,000 donors provide more than 250,000 gifts of blood yearly for transfusion and associated clinical services.

Every two seconds, someone needs blood, yet less than ten percent of those eligible to give blood do it. Blood donors with Oklahoma Blood Institute know they are, literally, saving the lives of their friends, family and co-workers, some who may have no idea they will need blood in an urgent situation. One blood donation can save up to three lives.

We are renowned as a great place to work and an international leader in blood banking and research. With more than 900 employees, we are a strong, nonprofit organization offering a positive work environment. With a vital community purpose, employees feel valued and fulfilled in meaningful work. Become an essential part of our life-saving mission!

We are an equal opportunity provider and employer.
