Why Jon Paul Needs Your Blood. Gate City sponsors "Pint for a Pint" on Wed, Aug 3

"With our upcoming blood drive, I thought you might be interested to know how much blood we used in the last 12 months here in Roswell.  That answer would be 2,546 units (or pints), which equates to almost 7 pints every day.  Of this total, we used 390 units for massive blood transfusions and another 138 pints for other emergencies.  

As a Level II Trauma Center, our average may be a little higher than most community hospitals.  Although some patients may only need a routine unit during or following surgery, we also see trauma patients that require numerous pints while surgeons work to stop blood loss from injury.  For example, we have single accident victims that require two to three dozen pints if they arrive with significant blood loss.  

As a Roswell Rotarian, I am humbled by the gift of life our members provide.  Please know your donation directly benefits your neighbors every day."  
Jon-Paul Croom, President, Wellstar North Fulton Hospital

Every club member can support our hospital's needs. Encourage a friend or family member to give in your honor -- or give yourself.  Every Rotarian wins.  Every Rotarian helps.
