Staff members at the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center are devoted to southeast Baltimore and continually strive to earn their place as an integral part of the community. Among our offerings are public outreach programs, health seminars and screenings, many of which are free.
In these uncertain times, patients and hospitals are relying on the generosity of blood donors to ensure a stable supply of blood for the most vulnerable among us. Healthy individuals are needed to donate now to help patients counting on lifesaving blood.
Donating blood is a safe process and you should not hesitate to give or receive blood. The American Red Cross is abiding by social distancing standards and is setting up their drives to have as much distance as possible between donors.
For a limited time, the American Red Cross will test all blood donations for COVID-19 antibodies as an additional health service to its donors. This testing may provide insight as to whether donors may have possibly been exposed to the coronavirus. Results will be available within 7-10 days.
