Rush Hospital Blood Drive
Rush Foundation Hospital will be hosting a blood drive, Thursday, May 21st at the Knights of Columbus on Highway 19 from 12:30 to 6PM. Tracy Keener, Patient Blood Management Transfusion Safety Officer tells how to set up appointments.
“You can go to Vitalint.org and they’ll be a place on the website that will ask if you want to donate and if you click on that, it will give you the places where blood drives are and you can set up an appointment that way. We’ve had the shutdown and we’ve had a lot of surgeries that have been postponed and now that we’re slowly reopening everything, some of the elective surgeries and some of our cancer patients are now seeking treatment and they're going to need blood.”
Keener also says donors can contact Rush Foundation Hospital to set up their appointments.
