“I have had two major operations at JHH and benefited from their bloodless program. Even before my operations, it was clear that my wishes about avoiding blood transfusions would be honored and respected. Their high level of professionalism was exceeded only by the warm, compassionate care I received. I count these individuals as life-long friends.”
