Save Lives as an On-Call Emergency Blood Donor
Because Kodiak is a remote island, the PKIMC lab also houses an emergency on-call blood donation system--a rare capability for clinical labs of any size. This donation system has saved many lives. Donors sign up and are called upon to provide blood when a patient's life is immediately at stake and blood reserves are not sufficient to meet the need. To help save lives as an emergency blood donor, come to the lab. Type O donors are especially needed.
The laboratory is open from 7:00 am to 6:00 pm Monday thru Friday and 8:00 am to 2:00 pm Saturday and Sunday for outpatient blood draws.
