Beaumont Health is hosting several blood drives due to a nationwide blood shortage.

It was announced Monday that the hospital system was impacted by the shortage, which could impact patient care.

β€œTo continue providing compassionate and extraordinary care to our patients, we are working diligently with blood suppliers to stabilize and increase the supply of blood.

The effort is expected to take several weeks,” Carolyn Wilson, RN, executive vice president and chief operating officer, said.

β€œWe are asking our Beaumont health care heroes to donate their own blood to help our communities.

And, we’re also asking the public to support this effort by donating their own blood, too."
