Outpatient Blood Transfusions
The Hospital at Hebrew Health Care offers outpatient blood transfusions at physicians' referrals. Patients receive attentive care in a healing, comforting, and quiet environment, conveniently located on the first floor of the Hospital at Hebrew Health Care. Parking is free and just outside The Hospital.
Our patients requiring an overnight transfusion are made comfortable in our hospital rooms. Family members are welcome to accompany patients to their appointments and may relax in our family area, equipped with television, DVDs, music and magazines. Our nurse manager can meet with family members or patients to answer any questions about the process and other services.
Transfusions are scheduled quickly to meet our patients' specific needs, including evenings and weekends. Transfusions take place 24 hours a day, seven days per week.
The Hospital at Hebrew Health Care partners with Collaborative Laboratory Services (a St. Francis Care provider), so patients may go to any Collaborative drawing site to have the initial blood drawn. Patients' physicians may call 860.218.2300 to schedule the appointment for the transfusion.
