Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital is holding 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 during the course of a 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."

Henry Mayo's next blood drive will take place Tuesday, Dec. 15, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., in the HMNMH/COC Clinical Education Center, 25727 McBean Parkway (hospital campus).

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