Medic needs blood
MEDIC Regional Blood Center continues to have a critical need for: O Positive, O Negative, and A Positive blood types. Anyone eligible to donate is encouraged to stop by one of MEDIC's four centers or any blood mobile drive. Those donating this week will be entered to win a Fall Sports Package for the University of Tennessee. The package will include a $250 gift card for UT Sports as well as other football-themed goodies. In light of recent, tragic, events, the MEDIC Regional Blood Center reminds the community that: The blood used for tragic events and trauma incidents comes from what is currently on the shelf at MEDIC Regional Blood Center which at this point, is a critically low inventory. It takes three days for donated blood to be tested, processed and ready for distribution to local hospitals. MEDIC Regional Blood Center is the provider for blood and blood-related products for 25 hospitals in 22 counties including UT Hospital, Covenant Health System hospitals and Tennova among others. Blood donated in our service area stays in our service. Medic will be in the parking lot of Title Max on West Broadway in Newport on Friday, 11am till 6pm.
