Mayor Ethan Berkowitz toured our new center in Anchorage during our first week. The expanded services provide additional options for patients that can help keep them closer to home during certain treatments. The new laboratory allows for testing the blood in state in times of disaster to ensure that all Alaskans are safe.
This month we are raising awareness about National Blood Donor month. January is often one of the hardest months to meet the needs of hospitals as fewer donors donate. In 1970 the month of January was designated as National Blood Donor Month. To say thank you to our donors, all donors that donate between January 14th and 23rd will earn 300 points.
