Crossroads Community Hospital giving back to the community with Red Cross blood drive

MT. VERNON, IL — Crossroads Community Hospital will host a community blood drive with the American Red Cross on April 7th from 8:00 AM to 2:00 PM at Crossroads Community Hospital in Mount Vernon, IL.

For more information or to make an appointment to donate, visit redcrossblood.org.

“Hosting a blood drive coincides with our core values of being involved in our community,” said Patrick Keyser, Director of Marketing at Crossroads Community Hospital. “With a simple blood donation, we have the ability to help save the life of someone who could be a coworker, loved one or neighbor.”

Blood is routinely transfused to patients with cancer and other diseases, premature babies, organ transplant recipients and trauma victims, according to the Red Cross.

“In the 10-15 minutes it takes to donate, it can mean a lifetime to a patient with a serious medical condition. We urge all eligible donors to join us in the selfless act of giving blood.”

Donors of all blood types are needed, especially those with types O negative, B negative and A negative. According to the Red Cross, type O negative is the universal blood type that can be safely transfused to anyone, and is often used to treat trauma patients.
