Blood Donors Needed During Summer Months


With the help of phlebotomist Larry Pangestu (left), Thomas M. Priselac, president and CEO, donated blood last year in order to highlight the importance of giving blood during the summer when supplies traditionally are low.

Employees, friends and families are encouraged to donate blood and platelets for patients at Cedars-Sinai to help ease the strain on the national blood supply caused by a seasonal dip in blood collections.

During the summer months, the need for blood spikes but donations are traditionally at their lowest. Vacations often cause regular donors to miss their scheduled donations, and school closures mean fewer mobile health drives.

Blood Donor Services is open Monday through Saturday in the South Tower, Room 1690. To schedule a donation, visit the Blood Donor Services page or call the Blood Donor Center at 310-423-5346.
