Blood Systems’ Mountain Division* Chooses LifeLineMobile® Blood Donor Mobiles
Founded in 1943, Blood Systems is an internationally known leader in transfusion medicine founded on the principles of quality, excellence and service. Blood Systems’ Mountain Division includes Bonfils Blood Center operations in Colorado and United Blood Services operations throughout Wyoming, western Nebraska and southwestern South Dakota. The combined organizations operate an average of 250 monthly blood drives. Together, Bonfils Blood Center and United Blood Services need to collect approximately 3,500 blood donations each week to support patients at nearly 140 hospitals and healthcare facilities.
To supplement the Mountain Division fleet of 48 vehicles, Blood Systems has selected LifeLineMobile to manufacture eight blood donation mobile units following a competitive RFP process.
Blood Systems is one of the nation’s oldest and largest nonprofit community blood service providers, with blood centers serving more than 1,000 hospitals across 28 states to provide comprehensive transfusion medicine services for patients in need.
The Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine Community Health Programs* has used LifeLineMobile® for its Mobile Health Clinics for Over 20 Years
The Heritage College mobile clinics, which began operation in 1994, have played an important role in providing quality medical care services to residents throughout southeast Ohio. Each year, two 40-foot mobile clinics from the Heritage College's Community Health Programs travel throughout southeast Ohio, providing health clinics at churches, community centers, schools and other community venues. The Heritage College mobile clinics provide:
- Free medical clinics for southeast Ohio residents who have inadequate or no health insurance
- Episodic health clinics
- Free women's health clinics
- Immunizations for children and adults
- Free adult health screenings for blood pressure, glucose and cholesterol checks
- School bus driver physicals for public school systems
- Adolescent clinics
Heritage College mobile clinics are staffed by certified nurse practitioners, volunteer physicians and students. Services through Community Health Programs are provided throughout a 21-county service area in medically underserved southeast Ohio.
According to Carole Merckle, BSN, RN, DTR, CDE, Interim Director of Community Health Programs at the Heritage College, they chose their first mobile medical unit from LifeLineMobile over 20 years ago. Because of their exceptional quality and responsive service, the college felt LifeLineMobile was the best choice to provide highly professional medical care to the rural communities they serve. Their first mobile unit from 1994 has since been retired, yet the Heritage College is now on the road with two newer mobile medical clinics from LifeLineMobile.
