Blood drive this month at Oakwood Hospital & Medical Center

Did you know that April is National Donate Life Month?

To say thank you to those who share the precious gift of blood, everyone who donates at Oakwood Hospital & Medical Center in Dearborn will be automatically entered to win a Caribbean getaway – a four-day, three-night stay at any Sandals Resort in Jamaica or the Bahamas, sponsored by the American Red Cross.

The drive will be held from 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. on April 19th in the Adray Conference Center and at the same times on April 20th in a mobile collection unit outside of the Fitzgerald Pavilion entrance.

Those with appointments will be given priority. To make an appointment, go to, sponsor code = oakwood 13, or call Kristin Murphy, 313.593.5899. Donors are encouraged to make appointments to decrease wait time and also so that the Red Cross can provide enough staff.
