This state-of-the-art 14,100 square foot facility is the latest addition to Grifols’ extensive plasma collection network. Grifols is a global healthcare company that produces life-saving plasma medicines for people with rare, chronic and life-threatening conditions.
Plasma donated at Grifols plasma donor centers is used to produce important medicines out of human plasma for people with rare and serious conditions, such as immune deficiencies, bleeding disorders, a rare neurological disorder, a genetic form of emphysema, and to treat shock, trauma, and burns. Grifols operates the largest network of plasma donor centers in the world that includes 170 centers in the United States.
Grifols invested close to $1 million in the construction and setup of the donor center, whose design will incorporate new industry technologies including Donor Doc, a donor self-registration platform that helps improve donor screening efficiency. Over the next several years, the donor center plans to accommodate
over 1,500 donors per week.
Grifols will ultimately contribute over $6.5 million each year to the local economy through payroll, donor fees and other operating expenses. Currently the center has hired 22 people from the local area, with expectations to increase to 40 employees as the center expands their operations. The majority of the positions are full-time employment, ranging from entry-level jobs for individuals with a high-school diploma seeking career opportunities in the healthcare field to medically-trained professionals.
