On April 1, 1975, the Texoma Regional Blood Center opened its doors for business and formally committed itself to provide the blood needs of the community. The establishment of Texoma Regional Blood Center represents the efforts of physicians, community leaders, and concerned individuals, determined to consolidate the blood delivery systems into an efficient program for the Texoma Region. It was soon realized that a new source of blood had to be developed to supply the Texoma area. Prior to that time, the primary source of blood was the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex. It took less than one year for the blood bank to progress from a concept to a reality, through the concerted effort of many individuals and the overall acceptance by the community. Texoma Regional Blood Center was formed to provide the Texoma Region with the quantity and quality of blood and blood components needed by the patients in area hospitals and that is what it has done - met patient needs.
