We are thrilled to announce that the on-site blood drive with our new blood supplier, South Texas Blood and Tissue Center, was a huge success! This two-day event collected 97 units of blood on the first day (at the hospital) and 77 units on the second day from the UMC Business and Technology Center. In total, we collected almost double the blood we usually collect at these events. This was also our first time hosting a donation event at the business and technology center. Our next event in November will extend to three days because of the huge success. Thanks, again, to all who supported this blood drive!
"The UMC culture plays a huge role in the success of our blood drives," said Kendra Schneider, Transfusion Services Operations Manager. "It is important for blood donors to consistently donate in order to ensure that the blood supply is available, and we are proud to say our employees consistently donate."
