Facts About Marietta Memorial Hospital’s Blood Mobile Services
Marietta Memorial Hospital operates one of only two hospital based blood banks in Ohio. Eighty to 90 percent of the blood products used at MMH & Selby are drawn locally, which is a tremendous advantage in terms of availability, quality and cost. Drawing blood locally can mean a big difference in patient treatment.

For example, the hospital can obtain blood products needed by patients more quickly than through off-site blood banks. Our 34-foot Blood Donor Mobile unit is equipped with four donor beds, an area where staff can take confidential donor health histories and storage space for post donation snacks and beverages. If you or your work industry would like to donate blood please call us at (740) 374-1432. Be a silent hero and save a life!
