It is no wonder that one of the biggest health care crisis facing the nation today is the availability of blood and blood products when they are needed.
St. Thomas More partners with the Vitalant to ensure there is a safe and adequate blood supply for Canon City and Fremont County. The need for blood donations is on-going. Blood cannot be manufactured, duplicated or produced outside of the human body. It can only be obtained through the volunteer efforts of healthy donors willing to give of themselves for the benefit of others.
If you are interested in becoming a blood donor, would like more information about blood donation, or would like to schedule an appointment to donate blood, pleas contact Vitalant.
Community Health Screenings
The mission of St. Thomas More Hospital calls for us to "nurture the health of the people in our communities." We do this through active participation in community events, local organizations and school programs. You will see St. Thomas More Hospital staff taking blood pressures and offering health education at events such as Florence Pioneer Day, Penrose Apple Day, the Pueblo Community College-Fremont County Senior Mini-Fair, and the annual 9Health Fair in Canon City. We are also available to speak on a variety of health topics for school or social programs. Contact us.
