Bloodworks Northwest declares a "Code Red" alert to combat the ongoing significant blood shortage affecting local hospitals and trauma centers across the Pacific Northwest over the last three weeks.
The closest location to Edmonds is at 19723 Highway 99, Suite F, Lynnwood. Info: 425-412-1000
Less than a 24-hour supply is all that remains on the near-empty shelves at Bloodworks.
Because Types O and A blood are in critically short supply, Bloodworks cannot keep hospital inventories full. Hospitals have been advised to conserve onsite supplies to maintain a supply for emergencies.
