AdventHealth Gordon is hosting a blood drive organized by Blood Assurance on Wednesday, April 26 from 9 am to 5 pm. The Bloodmobile will be parked in front of Resource Building 3 on AdventHealth Gordon’s campus.
According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, every two seconds, someone needs a blood transfusion. In health care settings in our community and across the country, donated blood is a potentially life-saving and essential part of caring for patients. One donation can save up to three lives.
To donate, there are some physical health requirements such as:
- Having a normal iron level (a low iron level may mean it’s unsafe for you to donate)
- Having a temperature, blood pressure and pulse within a healthy range
- Weighing 110 pounds or more
- Being at least 16 years old
To schedule an appointment, visit BloodAssurance.org or call Call800-962-0628. Be sure to eat a good meal, drink additional water and avoid energy drinks before your appointment.
