The Bellevue Hospital offers American Red Cross Bloodmobiles several times throughout the year.
To donate, you need to weigh between 110-350 pounds, be at least 17 years old, be in general good health, and be feeling well the day of the blood drive. A person can donate blood every 56 days. The American Red Cross needs approximately 250 donors-a-day to supply the blood needs for 18 northwest Ohio hospitals.
The Red Cross is in specific need of O-negative blood (universal donor), but all blood donors are welcome and accepted.
Appointments are required. To schedule an appointment, call 1-800-RED-CROSS, or visit www.redcrossblood.org and enter sponsor code BELLEVUEHOSP.
The event will be held in The Bellevue Hospital's Burson Conference Room at the 1400 W. Main Street facility in Bellevue.
