    How many NOBLOOD hospitals (surgery centers) are there?

    I need to find out how many bloodless surgery centers there are around the world. I'm hoping to learn more about them in order to answer some questions from doctors and nurses I know. Thanks for any help. And hello to everyone here.

    Thanks for pointing that out. I'm just getting used to the site. Thankfully, I can count. "-)

    There are more than listed on this site. Plus some that were - weren't very committed and have changed or if not changed then the following. Some that claim to be bloodless aren't.
    The most up to date list would be from the WT B & T Society - if you can get it.
    More facilities are being added all the time about 10 + a year in the US. Chicago has a 2nd facility now.
    The last time I counted - between 2 sites there were 40 in California alone and 10 in New Jersey.

    In some articles I have read. It was stated that there are one hundred and some hospitals in the US with non blood managment programs and two hundred are in development.

    I don't know about the world wide number.Less blood is really more, transfusion critics say - Health - Health care | NBC News

    I can't find the article that says there are 200 in development.
