Who we are

On July 1st 2023, the foundation called "Stichting Bloedbank Aruba" (Blood Bank) was legally merged with "Stichting Ziekenverpleging Aruba" (SZA-Horacio Oduber Hospital). This means that Bloedbank is now part of team HOH as a department within Horacio Oduber Hospital. Bloedbank is responsable for a safe and efficient supply of blood on Aruba on a non-commercial basis. The initiative to start a blood bank on Aruba came from the previous director and surgeon of our hospital dr. Frans Hage. He saw the necessity to gather all transfusion activities in a sole organisation and established Bloedbank in the year 1981 as a foundation.
