Blood Drive at Marcus Daly Memorial Hospital

The American Red Cross strives to collect over 700 pints of blood to meet the needs of patients in this area alone. In the Montana service area every 27 minutes someone needs blood. Marcus Daly Memorial Hospital (MDMH) helps the American Red Cross meet this need by sponsoring blood drives four times a year. The first blood drive for this year is on Thursday, February 27th from 11:30am to 5:30pm in the hospital conference rooms B/C. The remaining 2014 MDMH blood drives are on May 22nd, July 17th, and October 23rd. To schedule your blood drive appointments, please call Gary Schulz at 375-4451. Donors please remember to bring your identification with you and prior to donating blood eat complete meals, avoid caffeinated beverages, and drink plenty of water. Visit mdmh.org for more information about this event and the others coming soon. Marcus Daly Memorial Hospital is working together to build a healthier community!
