Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital will hold a winter blood drive on Tuesday, Dec. 15 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

The hospital needs more than 4,000 units of blood per year and partners with the American Red Cross to host five blood drives each year on the hospital campus.

"The blood is used to treat trauma patients who come through the hospital's Emergency Department and individuals who rely on the blood for transfusions to maintain their lifestyle," said Roger Der, medical director for the blood bank. "Regular donors are essential to keeping an adequate supply."

Newhall Memorial's next blood drive will take place in the HMNMH/COC Clinical Education Center, 25727 McBean Parkway (hospital campus), Valencia 91355.

To make an appointment, call (661) 253-8888 or register online at givelife.org and enter in sponsor code henrymayo.
