The AD Gorwala Blood Bank is an integral component of CDL. It is supported by NACO and is accredited by National Accreditation Board for Hospitals and Healthcare Providers (NABH); only sixth in the state of Gujarat. It is the first rural-based blood bank in India and the third one to be affiliated with a medical college in India. It regularly conducts awareness and motivation programmes, lectures and sessions, workshops, etc at the community level to encourage voluntary blood donation. It also works hard to meet the demand for blood transfusion for patients who are not in a position to replace it. Recognizing the quality of work delivered by it, the AD Gorwala Blood Bank was felicitated by the Gujarat State Council for Blood Transfusion (GSCBT) and the Health and Family Welfare Department, Government of Gujarat. It encourages voluntary blood donations.
