From Kathleen Scotto, SB BMT Nurse
Summer is coming and blood donations inevitably slow down. Cancer patients, especially hematologic cancer patients, need frequent blood transfusions, especially platelets. If you can donate blood or platelets please do so and help our patients. You can donate at Stony Brook Hospital and those donations will stay at Stony Brook to help our patients. If you are not in the area, no matter where you are, if you are able to donate PLEASE do so!! Thank you!! And feel free to share this post. Let's get a nationwide blood drive going!!! Call Stony Brook Blood Bank to make an appointment to donate.
Stony Brook University Hospital Blood Bank is open 6 days a week as follows:
You can schedule an appointment to donate blood or platelets by calling (631) 444-DONATE (3662) or by clicking here to visit our online portal where you can create an account and schedule an appointment online.
Walk-ins are always welcome!
