MEDIC Regional Blood Center is excited to host ‘Twas the The Pint Before Christmas’ along with Ober Gatlinburg and HOT 104.5 to provide a special treat to blood donors who roll up their sleeves on December 22nd!

MEDIC Regional Blood Center is currently unable to collect double red cell donations at this time. The factory where MEDIC’s ALYX kits are made is in Puerto Rico and because of the hurricane they have suspended operations until further notice. ALYX donations are important because they allow MEDIC to collect double the number of red cells from a donor. MEDIC is still able to collect whole blood donations. There is a constant need for blood but MEDIC is asking for O Negative donors to try to donate at this time, due to the lack of ALYX donations. For questions call: 865.524.3074
