Sycamore Medical Center recently earned the Platinum Leading the Way award from the Community Blood Center for leading the way in volume and efficiency for blood donation drives. This includes 100 percent donor participation during a recent blood drive.
Sycamore has participated for many years in the Community Blood Center blood drives hosted and organized by Teresa Taylor, lab coordinator, and Josh Felts, Epic Clinical Analyst.
More blood drives are being scheduled for the rest of the year. Even if employees have been deferred before, Josh encourages people to consider signing up again.
“If they are deferred once, they may not be deferred again,” he said. “We encourage people to always try.”
