MEDIC Regional Blood Center

One of the many reasons MEDIC Regional Blood Center in Knoxville, Tenn., has a reputation for being the gold standard in blood banks, is its focus on quality and efficiency. And one tool it uses in that quest is OTIS®-Blood Bank by Nouvation, which it has used since 2011 to facilitate quality assurance, drive process improvement and promote regulatory compliance.


MEDIC serves residents of East Tennessee and Southeast Kentucky, and is the sole provider of blood products for 28 area hospitals. Established in 1958 by Carl Nelson, MD, under the sponsorship of the Knoxville Academy of Medicine,* MEDIC is the only US blood center with a blood coverage program covering members’ blood supplier processing fees at any hospital in the country.

An accredited member of AABB (the American Association of Blood Banks), MEDIC is also a highly respected member of the America’s Blood Centers network and MEDIC CEO James Decker, DHA, FACHE, is a member of the ABC board of directors. (To-date, three ABC members have adopted OTIS.) The center adheres to the blood product safety regulations established by the FDA, and is licensed by the FDA and the State of Tennessee.

*Area physicians supported the independent, not-for-profit blood center because they wanted to create a source of blood from volunteer donors, as well as centralize blood collection, testing and distribution.
