The center has currently hired 25 people from the local area, with expectations to increase to 40 to 50 employees as the center expands their operations.  Grifols invested $2.5 million in the construction and set up of the the donor center, whose design will incorporate new industry technologies including Donor Doc, a donor-self registration platform that helps improve donor screening efficiency.  

Grifols projects it will ultimately contribute over $6.0 million each year to the local economy through payroll, donor fees and other operating expenses.
