Elizabethtown Community Hospital in Ticonderoga to Host Blood Drive This Month

ECH is partnering with The Adirondack Regional Blood Center, a program of the University of Vermont Health Network – Champlain Valley Physicians Hospital (CVPH) to host a blood drive this month.  Potential donors are invited to visit Elizabethtown Community Hospital at 101 Adirondack Drive, Ticonderoga on Thursday, April 25 from 1-4pm. 

Blood collected by the Adirondack Regional Blood Center stays in the North Country, helping hundreds of people in this region. Its success rests on the generosity of donors and sponsors.

To donate blood, potential donors must be at least 17 years-old (16 years-old with written parental/guardian consent), in generally good health and weigh at least 110 pounds. A screening questionnaire addressing personal medical, social and travel history must be completed prior to donating.  A donor card or another form of identification is also required. Donors must wait 56 days between donations.
