There’s no greater gift than life. Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital invites the community to give the gift of life by donating blood during their winter blood drive on Thursday, January 20 , from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the HMNMH/COC Clinical Education Center on the Henry Mayo Hospital campus.
Everyday, thousands of people rely on blood donors to help them maintain optimum health. Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital partners with the American Red Cross to host six blood drives each year on the hospital campus.
Blood collected at Henry Mayo is processed by the American Cross and dedicated to the hospital. That means that the blood is returned to the hospital for patient use.
In addition to on-campus blood drives, the American Red Cross also hosts drives throughout the community with dozens of businesses, schools, and community organizations. The blood collected at these hospital affiliate drives is also dedicated to Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital. For each unit of blood collected at these drives, the hospital receives a credit towards its hospital blood purchases. It’s an incentive for the hospital and gives donors another great way of helping the hospital.
