This month's blood drive schedule on the Southcoast Health Van

Give a pint ~ Save a life


When you give blood at the Southcoast Blood Bank, you are helping keep the local blood supply strong.

It's easy to donate — you can give blood at the Southcoast Blood Bank just off the main lobby at St. Luke's Hospital or out in the community on the Southcoast Health Van or at a local blood drive.

When you donate blood at St. Luke's Hospital it stays local, saving the lives of individuals right here in the South Coast region.

Stop by the Southcoast Blood Bank at St. Luke's Hospital anytime during our blood bank hours or call 508-973-5320 to make an appointment.

And thank you for being a blood donor — and being a hero!
