RMH hosting blood drive on Friday

RMH, in conjunction with Virginia Blood Services, will host a public blood drive from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday, June 29. Virginia Blood Services will have its blood mobile parked in Lot A near the RMH Heart & Vascular entrance. Donors may park in Lot A close to the blood mobile.

Virginia Blood Services supplies nearly all blood products used by patients at RMH, including those undergoing chemotherapy.

To be considered eligible to donate, you must be at least 17 years old (16 with parental consent), weigh at least 110 pounds, be in good health with no serious illnesses and have not donated blood within the last eight weeks.

Registered donors have preference. Call RMH Healthsource at (540) 564-7200 to register for a specific time. Walk-ins are welcome, and will be taken after registered donors.
