Holy Rosary Healthcare (HRH) will be hosting the Miles City Community blood drive, with United Blood Services (UBS) on December 12, 12:00-5:30 pm, in the HRH conference rooms. Appointments are encouraged and walk-ins will be accepted based on availability. To schedule an appointment, visit www.bloodhero.com (sponsor code: milescity) or contact Kären Cremer at 406-234-5415.
Donors must be in good health, at least 16 years of age, and weigh at least 110 pounds. Those under the age of 18 must present signed consent from a parent or guardian.
Blood may be needed at any given time, particularly for patients injured in accidents or in the treatment of illnesses. Because blood can be stored for only 42 days, obtaining fresh supplies is crucial.
United Blood Services – Rocky Mountain supplies blood and related products to over 40 hospitals in Montana, Wyoming and Nebraska. On average, UBS requires over 150 daily donations to ensure that communities have a safe and dependable blood supply.
