Doylestown Hospital Holds Community Blood Drive
Press Releases |
DOYLESTOWN – Doylestown Hospital will host a community blood drive on Friday, July 17 from 6:30 am to 5 pm in Conference Room J at Doylestown Hospital (595 West State Street, Doylestown).
Summer vacations and travel can contribute to less availability for people to give blood or platelets. In a spring survey of Red Cross blood and platelet donors, nearly 90 percent indicated plans to take vacations this summer. However, patients don’t get a summer holiday or vacation from needing lifesaving blood. The Red Cross relies on volunteer donors for the 15,000 blood donations needed every day to support patients at about 2,600 hospitals and transfusion centers nationwide.
Please register at the American Red Cross website and enter sponsor code doylestownhos, or call the Heart Institute office at 215-345-2328 to make an appointment.
