Cape Cod Healthcare Announces December Blood Drives

Cape Cod Hospital and Falmouth Hospital are in urgent need of blood donations. Numerous blood drives are being held across Cape Cod in December to benefit Cape Cod Healthcare (CCHC). Cape Cod and Falmouth hospitals must have at least one week’s worth of blood on hand at all times. Since each unit collected or purchased only lasts 42 days, it is a constant challenge to maintain sufficient supply. All the blood collected at Cape Cod Healthcare blood drives stays on Cape Cod to help our families, friends and neighbors. 

Donors to CCHC blood drives in December will receive a winter knit hat (beanie). 

Cape Cod Healthcare blood drives are scheduled in the coming weeks, including:
