Save Lives This Summer with Operation Blood Drive at AdventHealth

HENDERSONVILLE, NC, June 20, 2024 – We are excited to celebrate the start of the summer season by participating in the 37th Annual Operation Blood Drive. This annual event is in partnership with WLOS News 13, The Blood Connection and The American Red Cross. We are joining forces on Thursday, June 27 to make sure AdventHealth and other hospitals across the region have a sufficient blood supply through the July 4th holiday, when donations typically decrease. You can help make sure the blood supply stays at safe levels by donating at the Operation Blood Drive donation site at AdventHealth Hendersonville.

Every day we have patients in need of blood products for cancer care, surgeries and in our emergency department. During the July 4th holiday, it is important to have an adequate supply of blood for these daily needs along with the additional emergent care needs that come during summer travel and activities.

To make it easy for the public to donate, AdventHealth and The Blood Connection follow all safety protocols for blood donation.
