Blood Drive with American Red Cross

NEPHI, Utah December 6, 2017 – Central Valley Medical Center will host a community blood drive with the American Red Cross on December 12, 2017 from 9:30AM to 2:30PM at Central Valley Medical Center.

For more information or to make an appointment to donate, call 435-623-3115 or sign up online at with sponsor code CentralValleyMedicalCenter.

“Central Valley Medical Center is committed to strengthening our community and helping meet hospital and patient needs through blood donations,” said Nick Stewart, CVMC Marketing Director. “This blood drive is our way of giving staff, colleagues and neighbors yet another opportunity to help save lives.”

Blood is a perishable product that can only come from volunteer blood donors. With someone in the U.S. needing blood every two seconds, blood products must be constantly replenished, according to the Red Cross.

“We urge community members to donate blood and help ensure that patients in local hospitals have a supply of blood ready and waiting before an emergency occurs. There’s no better feeling than knowing that your blood donation may give someone a second chance at life.”

According to the Red Cross, donors with all blood types are needed, especially those with types O negative, A negative and B negative.
