Mayo Clinic Blood Donor Center in ‘immediate’ need for A+ and A- donations
(ABC 6 News) – The Mayo Clinic Blood Donor Center is in urgent and immediate need of A+ and A- blood donations.
Due to breaks from school and work, seasonal illness, vacations with family and friends, and hectic holiday schedules, people may donate less and less frequently, causing an emergent need for help with donations at this time.
This life-saving blood product is needed by our patients undergoing surgeries or treatment for medical problems, such as cancer, bleeding disorders, liver damage, burns, and severe bacterial infections.
There are two sites in Rochester to donate at:
- Mayo Clinic
Hilton Building, First Floor
210 2nd St. SW
The Mayo Clinic Blood Donor Center’s location on the main floor of the Hilton Building is open weekdays from 6 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. with special late-night hours on Tuesday, Dec. 21 from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.
- Mayo Clinic Hospital, Saint Marys Campus
Joseph Building, Main Floor, Room M-86
1216 Second St. SW
