January 20 – Winter Blood Drive
Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital invites the community to give the gift of life by donating blood during its 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.
Every day, 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.
To make an appointment, please call (661) 253-8888 or register online at redcrossblood.org and enter in sponsor code henrymayo. For more information or to host a blood drive at your organization, contact Laura Young, Henry Mayo’s public relations manager, (661) 253-8089.
