American Red Cross Blood Drives

American Red Cross LogoThe American Red Cross likes to call it the gift of life, and as far as St. Mary’s Health System is concerned, it really is.  During the course of a year, this hospital uses approximately 1500 units of blood products as we care for our patients.  So, every unit of blood that is donated at one of our blood drives – or at any other blood drive – is incredibly valuable.  When you consider that one individual blood donation can be broken down into as many as five different blood products that can help as many different people, it really is a wondrous gift. 

Those who wish to make appointments or have questions about eligibility may call the American Red Cross at 1-800-448-3543.  Donors who make appointments will be given preference, but walk-in donors are also encouraged on the day of the event.  Please remember to bring photo identification.
