Milford Regional Recognized by American Red Cross for Milestone in Blood Donations

Milford Regional Medical Center has been recognized by The American Red Cross for collecting more than 1,000 units of blood during 2018 at the hospital’s Blood Donor Center.

The dedicated donor space at Milford Regional, located off the Imaging Center waiting room, opened in February 2017 and has since enabled the Red Cross to run scheduled blood drives three or four times a month, as well as additional drives when a special need for red cells has occurred on short notice.

Milford Regional transfuses about 3,000 red cells annually and blood donor partners are now able to know where their collections have been used through the Red Cross’s “Blood Drive Partner Journey.” Blood products collected at Milford Regional in November were used at Lahey Clinic, Salem Hospital, St. Joseph Hospital, St. Luke’s Hospital, Elliott Hospital,Tufts Medical Center, South Shore Hospital, Massachusetts General Hospital, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Catholic Medical Center, VA Medical Center, West Roxbury VA, White River Junction, Children’s Hospital, Exeter Hospital, and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.
