Margaret Mary Health has partnered with Hoxworth Blood Center, University of Cincinnati to host a Community Blood Drive on Wednesday, April 2, 2014 from 8:00am to 5:00pm.  Hoxworth will have 2 Donor Buses parked on the hospital lot, located at 321 Mitchell Ave. in Batesville, IN.

 

To schedule your appointment, please visit www.hoxworth.org/groups/margaretmary or call the Lab at 812-933-5274.  Hoxworth recognizes that blood donors’ time is valuable.  Priority will be given to donors who have scheduled an appointment.  Walk-in donors are welcome and will be seen as soon as possible. 

 

“Local blood donors ensure that local patients at 31 area hospitals receive the lifesaving blood products they need to survive,” said Alecia Lipton, Hoxworth spokesperson.  “Community blood drives are vitally important and we hope to see a good turnout at the Margaret Mary Health blood drive.”

 

How to Donate:

Donating blood is safe and easy.  Donors must be at least 17 years old (16 with a signed parental consent) and in good health.  Individuals must weigh at least 110 pounds and bring identification to donate.  It is recommended that donors eat a good meal and drink plenty of water within four hours before donating.
