Maintaining life-giving supplies of blood is critical for our hospital, region and nation. That's why Methodist employees are encouraged to participate in a monthlong blood drive sponsored by the Nebraska Community Blood Bank.

Throughout December, Methodist employees can give blood at the Nebraska Community Blood Bank Donor Center at 12100 Pacific St. in Omaha. Appointments are recommended, and they can be made by visiting or calling (402) 486-9414. Donors are also eligible to win a year's worth of cookies (more details here).

No fasting is needed to donate. Plan to allow approximately one hour for the donation process.

For answers to specific questions about your eligibility to donate, or help registering, call (402) 486-9414.

You are especially encouraged to call if:

  • Your iron count may be low
  • You have traveled to Mexico in the last year

Please share this information with employees who do not have access to Outlook.
