Give a pint ~ Get a pound

You give us a pint of blood and we'll give you a pound of delicious Dunkin' Donuts® coffee!

Dunkin' Donuts has teamed up with the Southcoast Blood Bank at St. Luke's Hospital to encourage local residents to donate blood.

In January, anyone who donates blood at the Southcoast Blood Bank at St. Luke's Hospital or at any Southcoast Blood Bank site or blood drive will receive a certificate for a pound of Dunkin' Donuts coffee. Coupons are redeemable at any Dunkin' Donuts shop.

Go Red for Women

Heart disease is every woman's number one health threat. And Southcoast helps women maintain heart health in many ways:

Our free Cardiac Prevention program has served over 3,700 Southcoast residents. The program's prevention efforts focus on promoting education, lifestyle changes and risk factor modification.

Feeling Fit is a program of supervised exercise and education for those who are at risk for heart disease or recovering from heart disease.

And our Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehab programs are offered in Fall River, New Bedford and Wareham for patients who are recovering from heart disease or pulmonary disease.

Take our heart risk quiz and send for a free Women & Heart Disease tip card.

Helping hands in the Gulf Region

Not since the terror attacks of September 11, 2001, has a homeland disaster riveted our attention in the way Hurricane Katrina did.

In less than 24 hours, the storm cut a swath of destruction through parts of Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi. The storied city of New Orleans sustained devastating damage and barely-known towns like Waveland, Miss., were reduced to rubble.

The lives of three Southcoast employees were forever changed by the storm. Debi Ladd and Smoky Moak are long-time employees who worked in disaster relief through the American Red Cross. Moak was born in New Orleans and felt a kinship to hurricane survivors. Cindy Esmail is also a native of New Orleans and was working at Memorial Medical Center as the hurricane bore down upon it. She worked for Southcoast through a nursing agency while her father worked to rebuild the family home and returned to her hometown in January.

All were witness to the devastation, heartbreak and terrible human toll the hurricane brought upon those that lay in its path. Read their first-person accounts of their involvement in hurricane relief.
