BCMH Blood Drive set for 2/10/20

Bates County Memorial Hospital will host a Blood Drive with Community Blood Center on Wednesday, February 10, 2021 from 12:00 – 5:00 p.m. in the BCMH Education Center, located on the east end of the hospital. Donors are asked to wear a mask and to enter the blood drive at the Education Center entrance.

Donating blood is safe and it only takes about one hour. We are taking extra precautions to help prevent the person-to-person spread of CoVID-19. CBC staff are also practicing health self-assessments prior to presenting at work and wearing masks throughout their workday. 

As always, people are not eligible to donate if they are experiencing a cold, sore throat, respiratory infection or flu-like symptoms. Additional information is available at

Appointments are strongly recommended for this drive to allow us to maintain recommended numbers for the event space. Donors must wear a mask. Please bring a mask if you own one. A mask will be supplied for donors who present without one.
