Baptist recognized for blood donation efforts

Baptist Memorial Health Care recently earned Lifeblood’s Lifesaver of the Year award for collecting the most blood and platelet donations in a calendar year. Lifeblood also recognized the Baptist Health Sciences University with an award for its increase in collections over last year and percentage of people who donated blood.

The two Baptist entities, along with several other Memphis-area organizations and individuals, were honored at Lifeblood’s fifth annual awards luncheon for their efforts in 2013 to promote and support blood donation in the community.
