Your Donation Serves Our Community
Blood Donations with Lee Memorial Blood Center remain in our four acute care hospitals–Cape Coral Hospital, Gulf Coast Medical Center, HealthPark Medical Center and Lee Memorial Hospital, which houses the only Trauma Center within a five–county radius. Blood also benefits patients at our specialty hospitals–The Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida and The Rehabilitation Hospital–and patients receiving treatment at the Regional Cancer Center. The blood used for patient care has to be continuously replenished in order to maintain a constant blood supply. This means our blood centers need a total of 800 donors a week.
Helping More Than One Person
Just a single pint of blood can help save the lives of several people. Your donation can be separated into its different components; the platelets may go to a child with leukemia, the plasma to a patient with a clotting problem and the red blood cells to an accident victim.
Help ensure that adequate supplies of blood are available for you, your family and others in our community.
