Jamestown Regional Medical Center recently sponsored a blood drive for the United Blood Services on Aug. 13 at the JRMC Clinic. Out of 54 volunteers that signed up to donate blood, 41 were able to give. Eight donors gave blood on the automated 2RBC machine, which collects two units of red blood cells during the donation. Twelve volunteers donated blood for the first time.
“Our goal for this year’s blood drive was to sign up 53 donors for the blood drive – we exceeded our goal which is very exciting,” stated Abby Silbernagel, JRMC blood drive coordinator. “Thank you to the community and staff for support as we do our part to make sure patients have the blood supply that they need.”
JRMC’s blood drive total contribution was 49 units of blood for United Blood Services.
