Gilbert Hospital And United Blood Services Help Save Lives

 

Gilbert Hospital will host a community blood drive in partnership with Arizona United Blood Services on Wed, May 24 from 7:30 AM to 10 AM. The drive will be held at 5656 South Power Road, Gilbert, AZ 85295.

About 1 in 5 people entering a hospital needs blood, so donors are always in constant demand.  Patients with cancer, victims of accidents, and those undergoing surgery are just some of the recipients who benefit from blood donations.  By donating just one pint of blood, you have the potential to save up to three lives.

Our goal is to see 25 donors.  Anyone who is at least 17 years old, weighs a minimum of 110 lbs. and is in generally good health can donate blood.  The entire process takes about an hour and all blood types are needed. Donors should bring a valid photo ID.  Refreshments and treats will be served after donations.
