Give a pint ~ Get a pound

Start 2007 off right!

All during January, you give us a pint of blood and we'll give you a pound of delicious Dunkin' Donuts® coffee!

Dunkin' Donuts is teaming 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.

Orthopedic surgery at Southcoast: New tools in experienced hands

One of the latest techniques in orthopedic surgery is the partial knee replacement. Instead of replacing the total knee joint, we can replace just the bad part.

So you can limp in, start walking normally in a few weeks and never have to worry about Boston traffic.

At Southcoast, we perform over 5,000 orthopedic procedures a year, including more than 900 knee and hip replacements. And orthopedic specialists are on call 24/7 in our Emergency Departments.

With advanced technology, minimally invasive techniques and the expertise of 21 board-certified and fellowship-trained surgeons, the best place for your orthopedic care is now a lot closer to home.
