The predecessor of Hainan Provincial Blood Center is Hainan Red Cross blood station, established in 1989, subordinate to Hainan Govermental Health Department. It shoulders the responsbility of supplying blood to clinical use for the whole province, which involves blood collection, preparation, storage, release, and clinical blood transfusion research and promotion. The centre has seven departments, three sub-centers and four blood banks. The number of total staff is 133, 16 acquired mid to advanced lever technical certification, the proportion of staff of health education background is 72%.
The center covers an area of 2 hectare in 1996, capital asserts is 4.5 million, the working environment is a modern and garden alike place. Its development strategy is "survival by quality, improve efficiency by improving management, develop the center in the course of reform and make improvement amid innovation " .
The center has always been promoting the development of non-remunerated voluntary blood donation.
In the year of 1997, two sub-centers have been built, forming a center-radiation network of blood collection and supplying. The third sub-centers were built in 2003. Blood collected in the three sub-centers are all transported to the Haikou center for centralizing testing. The model has effectively integrated the limited resources, avoiding the repetitive construction and improper competition. All the blood collected can be tested centralized, centralized managed and distributed so as to assure the blood quality, reduce management and preparation cost, improve management quality and service quality.
