Blood Drive
AMMC is sponsoring a blood drive in partnership with the American Red Cross
Tuesday, November 20 from 11am-5:30pm
Auditorium in the Professional Office Building at AMMC
According to the Red Cross, 1 in 10 people entering a hospital needs blood. Blood transfusions are used for trauma victims due to accidents and burns; heart surgery; organ transplants; women with complications during childbirth; newborns and premature babies and patients receiving treatment for leukemia, cancer and other diseases such as sickle cell anemia. At AMMC alone, approximately 100 units are transfused monthly.

To give blood for transfusion to another person, you must be healthy, be at least 17 years old or 16 years old if allowed by state law (includes Arkansas, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Missouri and Tennessee). You must weigh at least 110 pounds, and have not donated whole blood in the last 8 weeks (56 days) or double red cells in the last 16 weeks (112 days). "Healthy" means that you feel well and can perform normal activities. If you have a chornic condition such as diabetes or high blood pressure, "healthy" also means that you are being treated and the condition is under control. Each person who successfully donates blood at AMMC will receive three $5 coupons to be used at the Auxiliary Gift Shop, Beacon's Deli, Cafeteria or The Foundation Station.
