NDH February Blood Drive
Time: 12:30am - 5:30pm
Location: Northern Dutchess Hospital, Rhinebeck
Northern Dutchess Hospital will host a Blood Drive in the Hospital's Cafeteria Conference Room. Healthy individuals who are at least 17 years old and who weigh at least 110 pounds are eligible to donate blood. Donors are eligible after fifty-seven days from their last blood donation.

The need for blood is greater than ever due to the Haiti earthquake disaster. At the request of the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), the American Red Cross is providing blood and blood products to Haiti, as well as first aid, food, water, and emotional support. There is a particular need for donors with Type O negative blood as it is universal and can be given to anyone, regardless of their blood type, and is often used in emergency situations.

To sign up as a donor at NDH, please call 845- 871-3471.
