Summer is the most challenging time of the year to collect blood for patients. Pennsylvania Hospital – and indeed other hospitals throughout the Delaware Valley – is feeling the effects of the summer trend. Blood donations have dropped significantly in the past few weeks and a blood shortage has been declared.
The shortage is felt all across the country. Did you know that every two seconds, someone in America needs blood? Every day, 34,000 donations are needed to help save the lives of cancer patients, trauma victims and children with blood disorders in the United States. Yet a little goes a long way as just one pint of blood can help save as many as three lives.
Our hospital plays an important part in a nationwide effort to increase blood donations. But we need your help. Your participation – which takes less than an hour – can have a significant life saving impact.
