LifeShare opens New Location in Baton Rouge


September 18, 2019

LifeShare's new donor center is now open for the public and located at 5745 Essen Lane in Baton Rouge. The new building provides over 5,000 square feet for donors and its employees. 

Not only can donors give blood but they can also donate platelets as of today. Regional Director Stephanie Duplessis says, "In the past, platelets going to help patients in Baton Rouge had to come from donors in Shreveport, Monroe or Alexandria. Now blood donors in Baton Rouge can provide platelets to their own friends and family through this expanded option." 

The previous location is now closed and the new center is open six days a week.
