Cox Medical Center Branson has teamed up once again with Community Blood Center of the Ozarks to host a blood drive Friday, July 25. The blood drive will run from noon-6 p.m. in the Magnolia, Dogwood and Redbud conference rooms at Cox Branson, 525 Branson Landing Blvd.
Donors to Community Blood Center of the Ozarks provide all of the blood for patients at 38 area hospitals, including Cox Medical Center Branson.
Every five minutes on average, a transfusion takes place and it takes approximately 250 donations each day to meet the area’s blood needs.
To be eligible to give blood, donors must weigh at least 110 pounds, be in good health and present a valid photo ID. Anyone planning to give is encouraged to eat well and drink plenty of fluids prior to the blood drive.
