DES MOINES, IA (July 6, 2020) –
LifeServe Blood Center and Clarinda Regional Health Center are excited to announce their new partnership. LifeServe, your community blood center, is now the sole supplier of all blood and blood products to Clarinda Regional Health Center.
LifeServe Blood Center provides 100% of the blood that more than 120 hospitals across Iowa, Nebraska, and South Dakota use. Now that Clarinda Regional Health Center is partnering with LifeServe, community members will have a chance to save lives in their own town. This also includes helping those fighting COVID-19 who may need a lifesaving convalescent plasma product.
“We are always looking to develop new relationships and see what will come of those. LifeServe came through for us earlier in the year and it really had a great impact,” said Bethany Muller, Business Development & Marketing Manager for Clarinda Regional Health Center. “We want to see how working with LifeServe can benefit both parties, as well as the community.”
“We’re thrilled to be offering folks in Clarinda and the surrounding area the opportunity to make sure their donation stays local,” said Claire DeRoin, Community Relations Coordinator for LifeServe Blood Center. “You never know when you, your neighbor, a family member, or a friend may need a lifesaving blood transfusion; and when they do, those blood products will come from blood donors who give with LifeServe Blood Center.
LifeServe Blood Center and Clarinda Regional Health Center are urging the community to boost the blood supply for local patients on Wednesday, July 22, between 12:15 – 5:30 p.m. at Clarinda Regional Health Center. Your donation will ensure those in our community in need of lifesaving blood products will receive them at a moment’s notice.
Blood donors do more in one hour than most will do in a lifetime by giving the gift of life! If you’re interested in donating blood or hosting a blood drive at your business or organization, visit lifeservebloodcenter.org or call LifeServe at 800.287.4903.
