University, St. Joseph's, Grouse and Com- munity General hospitals spent million for blood last year. A study commissioned by the hospitals shows they could save at least 20 percent, or more ihiia million a year, by es- tablishing a local, independent blood center. "It's a matter of trying to keep costs in line cient said Ron Lagoe of the Hospital Executive Council, a planning agency spon- sored by the four hospitals. Their blood costs increased 64.6 percent from 2000 to 2004. Last year alone, the four hospitals' blood costs rose nearly 13 percent. That hike re- flected increased use of blood products, the cost of new federally mandated testing and an annual tee increase, according to Phil Latulipe, regional sales director for the Red Cross. He met with Syracuse hospital officials Fri- costs and their blood bank proposal. "I thought we had a good, open discus- Latulipe said. "At the end of the day we want each hospital to have all the informa- tion they need to make an informed decision." While the Red Cross is the sole supplier here, independent nonprofit community blood centers provide about half the nation's blood supply. Their prices tend to be 20 percent to 30 percent lower than ihe Red Cross' prices, according to William M.
