BloodworksNW partners with Bishops
As the Covid-19 pandemic comes to a hopeful close, more Americans are seeking medical care — only to find roadblocks to long-awaited elective surgeries or unexpected traumatic injuries: a critical national shortage of blood.
In June of 2021, the blood supply dropped to “red” level, indicating dangerously low supply at blood centers nation-wide. In comparison to 2019, the demand for blood has climbed by 10% in hospitals with trauma centers and by more than five times in other facilities that provide transfusions.
The demand for blood remains at an all-time high for the Pacific Northwest and our supply needs to keep up. With a steep decline in donations, it’s a critical time to inspire and motivate our community to give blood.
Bishops is excited to partner with BloodworksNW in raising awareness for the need of donating blood.
