Blood Donation Saves Lives

The American Red Cross has an ongoing critical need for blood donations. Blood products are perishable, and the only source of life-saving blood is volunteer blood donors. MaineHealth greatly appreciates the generosity of the public to help stock hospital shelves for patients in need.

“It is important, not only to our caregivers and patients, but to our entire region, that we not let our supplies of donated blood fall to critical levels. This is a significant priority that deserves our attention and the attention of everyone in the community who is able to donate blood.” - Dora Mills, MD, Chief Health Improvement Officer
