Who are the patients at Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital?  They’re your friends, neighbors and family members.

And when you donate blood at Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital’s Sizzlin’ Summer Blood Drive, you are possibly saving the lives of Henry Mayo’s patients.

The hospital’s Sizzlin’ Summer Blood Drive will be held from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 26, at the Henry Mayo/COC Clinical Education Center (on the hospital campus), 25727 McBean Parkway, Valencia.

It takes just a little time to make a big difference, with each donation typically taking less than an hour. The blood given during the drive will be returned to the community for hospital patients.

Parking is available on the hospital campus for all hospital visitors, including individuals who come to the campus to donate blood. Complimentary attendant-assisted parking is available adjacent to the hospital’s main entrance on Orchard Village and McBean Parkway.

Giving blood is simple, painless and it takes less than one hour. Any healthy person age 17 or older and weighing at least 110 pounds, and who has not donated blood in the last eight weeks, may be able to donate blood.

Donors can register on-line at www.henrymayo.com, call (661) 253-8888 for an appointment, or simply show up between 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Aug. 26. Donors are requested to bring a valid photo ID, and eat a nutritious meal prior to donating.
