TGMC Blood Donor Center Extends Operating Hours

05/28/2013

Terrebonne General Medical Center (TGMC) Blood Donor Center has expanded hours of operation in order to meet the needs of our community. The TGMC Blood Donor Center is now open Monday – Thursday, 7:30 am- 5:30 pm and on Friday, 7:30 am- 3:30 pm.

Blood is needed every five seconds - for babies, leukemia patients, burn victims, emergency surgeries, organ transplants, trauma patients and more. Few acts are as simple, and yet so generous, as donating blood. Volunteers donate virtually all of this country’s blood supply for transfusions.  When you donate at the TGMC Blood Donor Center, your blood goes to patients directly at TGMC.

The donation process takes about 40 minutes. The donor must be in good health, weigh at least 110 pounds, and be at least 17 years old. Appointments are available but walk-ins are always welcome. Please call 873-4025 for more information.

The TGMC Blood Donor Center is located on Belanger Street behind the hospital and has convenient parking available. We appreciate your donation that could save up to 3 lives!
