Hospital Aid Sponsors Blood Drive

October 17th, 2012

On Friday, October 26, the Waldo County General Hospital Aid will sponsor an American Red Cross blood drive at the Masonic Lodge Hall next to the Shrine Club on the corner of Northport Avenue and Wight Street, Belfast, from 2:00-7:00 p.m.

            Giving blood is easy and completely safe. The complete process from registration to relaxing at the canteen is usually about one hour. The Red Cross has guidelines to protect both the donor and potential recipient of blood products. You must be 17 years old, weigh at least 110 pounds, be in general good health and show a valid I.D. There are waiting periods to donate blood for people who have experienced pregnancy, major surgery, immunizations, tattoos or residency in a foreign country.

            All presenting donors in October will have a chance to win a seven day cruise for two departing from Boston to Bermuda on the Norwegian Dawn.  

The goal of this blood drive is to collect 60 units of blood to replenish supplies and to help patients in need. Support your community and your local hospital with the gift of life.

To make an appointment for the October 26th blood drive, please call 1-800-RED CROSS. Walk-ins are also welcome. For additional information, call the Red Cross or visit their website at

Get a mammogram! We’ll do it free on Oct. 27 if you can’t afford it.

September 21st, 2012

Did you know that next year, over 200,000 women will get breast cancer? Scary, isn’t it? But there is something you can do.


October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month and a perfect reminder that early detection can save lives. Most doctors feel that early detection tests for breast cancer save thousands of lives each year, and that many more lives could be saved if more women and their health care providers took advantage of these tests.


Get in touch with your doctor today to set up a mammogram. It’s especially important because these screenings may find tumors too small to feel.


And if you can’t afford a screening mammogram,Waldo County General Hospital is offering free screening mammograms for women who can’t afford on Saturday, Oct. 27, from 8 a.m. to noon. Call 338-9366 for more information or to schedule your appointment.
