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.
To schedule an appointment, call 1-800-RED-CROSS, or visit www.redcrossblood.org and enter sponsor code BELLEVUEHOSP. Appointments are required.
The event will be held in The Bellevue Hospital's Burson Conference Room at the 1400 W. Main Street facility in Bellevue.
