Lee Health in need of blood donations, supply ‘critically low’
Lee Health is hoping to get help from the community in the form of blood donations. They say the current supply is critically low and that they are in urgent need of donors.
Lee Health says about 800 units of blood are needed to help care for patients in the Lee Health system every week. The lee Health blood centers are the only blood provider for Lee Health hospitals.
Lee Health’s mobile blood donation unit will be moving throughout Southwest Florida to make it easier for you to donate. Their next shot is Rural King Supply at 26831 S. Tamiami Trl., Bonita Springs from 11 a.m. — 3 p.m. on Nov. 27.
