St. Joseph’s Hospital cancels Fall Rotary Blood Screenings due to increase in COVID infections

BUCKHANNON — St. Joseph’s Hospital is cancelling the Fall Rotary Blood Screenings scheduled for September, October and November.

The hospital is at critical levels with COVID patients. Staffing is needed elsewhere in the hospital to ensure that it continues to provide care for those needing emergency and critical care.

We hope to be able to resume the blood screenings in the future, but that will be contingent on the status of COVID and emergency operations. Please check media outlets and the hospital’s Facebook page for announcements concerning future blood screenings.
