blood drive

AdventHealth Gordon is hosting a blood drive organized by Blood Assurance on Wednesday, Dec. 21 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 or call Call800-962-0628. Be sure to eat a good meal, drink additional water and avoid energy drinks before your appointment.
