Jul 29, 2021
BELMONT COUNTY, Ohio — There is a critical need for blood nationwide, and East Ohio Regional Hospital is teaming with the American Red Cross in an effort to reverse the shortage.
"It's gotten to the point now where people are not getting surgeries, where people are going to be limited on the amount of blood they get," said Dr. Jeremy Edgmon, CMO, East Ohio Regional Hospital.
Edgmon says the blood shortage is an issue locally, and EORH came up with a way to help.
