Local Hospital Desperately in Need for A-Positive Blood Types

blood Donate1 300MURRAY, Ky. (2/5/13) – Murray-Calloway County Hospital’s Blood Donor Center is in need of all blood types, but especially A-POSITIVE blood, at this time. Area residents are given the opportunity to donate blood by attending one of the upcoming blood drives in the community, or by making an appointment at the Blood Donor Center, which is located on the first floor of the North Tower at Murray Hospital.
 
The constant supply of blood provided locally to the Center gives the gift of life to many people, and takes less than an hour to complete. MCCH’s Blood Donor Center is one of only two hospital-based donor centers in Kentucky, which means the blood drawn from our community stays in our community.
 
A blood donor must be at least 18 years of age (or 16-17 with parental consent), be in good health, must weigh at least 110 pounds, and pass the brief physical and health history exams given prior to donation.
 
The need for blood donors is always needed and always appreciated. If you are unable to stop by or make an appointment at the Donor Center, the next blood drives in the community, and open to the public, will be on the following dates:
 
• Wednesday, February 6 from 5:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Glendale Road Church of Christ located at 1101 Glendale Road in Murray, KY.
• Tuesday, February 12 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Kenlake Foods located at 300 N Lp Miller Street in Murray, KY.
• Wednesday, February 20 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Center for Health & Wellness located on 716 Poplar Street in Murray, KY.
 
“With the extreme sickness our area has experienced these past few months, blood donations are down” said Beth Wiggins, Blood Donor Center Coordinator. “So, if you’re healthy and want to make a positive impact in someone’s life, please give us a call – we need all the help we can get at this time and are very appreciative of our community’s continued support of the Blood Donor Center.”
 
If you are interested in hosting a blood drive, or donating blood, please contact the MCCH Blood Donor Center at 270-762-1119.
