Posted on 22-06-2016

On the 14th of June 2016 Hospiten Jamaica Ltd and the National Blood Transfusion services (Blood Bank) of Jamaica celebrated World Blood Donor Day by staging a blood collection drive at the Hospiten Montego Bay’s 24HR medical facility.

This year the theme of the day was “Blood Connects Us All” which highlighted the common link that all people share in their blood. Hospiten Montego Bay was pleased to extend its support to this activity that brought attention to the important role that voluntary donation systems play in promoting solidarity and sense of community.

The blood drive attracted many new and existing donors from in and around Montego Bay, corporate entities and also the staff members of Hospiten. The members of the Cornwall Regional Hospital blood collection team worked hard throughout the day and in the end deemed the event a great success.

Transfusions of blood and blood products help save many lives every year during emergencies and are fundamental in the support of complex medical and surgical procedures.

Hospiten Montego Bay is a 24HR private general hospital in Rosehall St. James that offers specialist, diagnostic and emergency medical services. Under its Clinic Assist brand the group also manages 12 outpatient medical centres located in various tourist resorts, in the Sangster international Airport and the Port of Falmouth.  The Hospiten Group is an international hospital network that operates 19 Hospital-Medical Centres, and more than 100 health centres in Jamaica, Spain, the Dominican Republic and Mexico.
