Donate blood and save life, donating blood is a divine experience.’
St.philomenas hospital blood bank was established in 1997, license number KTK/28 C-47/97 is certified to operate processing of whole blood and Blood components.
Blood banking refers to the process of collecting, separating, and storing blood. We collect blood and separate it into its various components so they can be used most effectively according to the needs of the patient. Red blood cells carry oxygen, platelets help the blood clot, and plasma has specific proteins that allow proper regulation of coagulation and healing. Although research has yielded drugs that help people’s bone marrow produce new blood cells more rapidly, the body’s response time can still take weeks, thus donated blood remains an important and more immediate life-saving resource.
