The blood drive will take place at Henry Mayo’s COC Clinical Education Center, located on the hospital’s campus at 23845 McBean Parkway in Valencia.
The Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital teams up with the American Red Cross in an effort to put on six blood drives every year on the hospital’s campus.
Refreshments for donors will be provided.
The blood that is received from the blood drive will be processed by the American Red Cross, and then returned to the hospital for patient use.
“The blood we collect is processed by the Red Cross and then returned to the hospital to be used by people in our community,” said Maria Odem, communications specialist for the hospital. “We like to provide blood during holiday when people need it most.”
The American Red Cross also hosts additional blood drives throughout the community.
The American Red Cross works with local businesses, schools and community organizations to collect blood.
The blood collected from these partners is also dedicated to the Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital.
The hospital receives credit towards blood purchases for each unit of blood collected at these drives.
