FORT MYERS, Fla. — Lee Health is seeking blood donations to help replenish supply levels. All blood donated at Lee Health stays within the health system to care for patients in Southwest Florida.

As home to the regions only trauma center, it is vital that the health system’s blood supply remains at healthy levels in order to quickly care for patients needing an urgent transfusion.

Blood and blood products are not only used in the trauma center, but also to treat cancer patients, premature babies, anemia and a variety of other conditions.

Lee Health’s blood centers are the sole supplier of all blood products for the entire health system. About 800 units of blood are needed per week, and the blood centers rely on life-saving donations from the community to maintain inventory levels.
