Critical need for blood in UP, officials say

Upper Peninsula Health System

MARQUETTE, MI— The UP Regional Blood Center is experiencing a critical need for O-negative, A-negative, and B-negative blood types.

The UP Regional Blood Center has collection sites in Marquette, Hancock, and Escanaba and is the primary supplier of blood products to 13 Upper Peninsula hospitals.

This blood supply allows healthcare providers to treat patients with a wide variety of conditions. All blood donations stay in the Upper Peninsula, and a single donation could save up to three lives.

Kick off the summer by making a difference in our community by donating blood. To schedule an appointment, call 906.449.1450, or visit our website for more information.
