Who We Are

Nebraska Community Blood Bank, a division of Innovative Blood Resources (IBR), has been saving lives in our communities since 1968 as an independent nonprofit blood center. Driven by our mission, we are dedicated to connecting people who need life-saving blood with generous volunteers who give. We provide a stable supply of blood and blood components to healthcare facilities throughout Nebraska.

Innovative Blood Resources is a non-profit community blood center that was formed in 2012 through the combination of two nationally-recognized, community-based nonprofit blood centers: Minnesota-based Memorial Blood Centers and Nebraska Community Blood Bank. IBR provides comprehensive product and service capabilities focusing on value-driven solutions for patients, hospitals, physicians, researchers, and other health care partners.

In 2016, IBR formed a strategic partnership with New York Blood Center Enterprises (NYBCe) to create one of the nation’s leading blood centers, serving patients and hospitals in the Northeast, Midwest, and nationally. Nebraska Community Blood Bank will continue to build its local connections as a vital community resource that provides quality blood and biomedical services to our customers and partners.
