Bob Schlageter graced us as this weeks SOD but he talked so fast I had a hard time writing it all down. He was born in 1942 in Denver and attended Englewood Schools and graduated from H.S. in 1960. He then attended CSU and earned a Biological Science degree and later, a Masters Degree in Urban Affairs from CU. After graduation, Bob was hired by the USDA and was posted in California where he inspected their various fruits and nuts. He returned to Denver in 1968 and has worked for the Denver Health Department.

Every year at The Children's Hospital, 8,000 units of blood products are transfused into sick and injured infants, children and teens. Without this blood, many of the lifesaving procedures performed at The Children's Hospital would not be possible. The blood you donate gives these children a better chance for a healthy life.

Blood donation does not cost money and requires little time. It does, however, make a big difference. The Children’s Hospital has devoted volunteers who donate blood on a regular basis. Unfortunately, we can still run short during times of crisis or with children that have a very specific need. Help us maintain a steady supply of the wide range of blood products that kids need!

Types of Blood Donations
Whole blood donations, providing red cells and plasma
Apheresis platelet donations, providing platelets, plasma or white blood cells
Other Services We Provide
Autologous blood donations, donations a patient provides for their own use later
Directed blood donations, donating blood to someone you know
Therapeutic apheresis and stem cell collections, procedures to remove certain components of blood as treatment for illness or preparation for chemotherapy
