If the answer is no, your chance of survival is between 5-7%. If the answer is yes, your chance of survival could be as high as 90%!

Summa Western Reserve Hospital
3rd Annual Rumble at the Reserve Blood Drive Draws Knockout Attendance
Cuyahoga Falls, OH, September 17, 2012 – Summa Western Reserve Hospital broke yet another blood donation record and exceeded donor expectations during its “Rumble at the Reserve III” Blood Drive in collaboration with the American Red Cross on August 23rd. With a record turnout of 281 employee and community donors this year, 224 usable pints of blood were collected – surpassing the initiative goal of 194 usable pints. The “Rumble” event featured Summa Western Reserve Hospital’s Departments of Surgery and Medicine squaring off in a mock boxing match for the title to see which department could bring in the most donors. Donors were invited to choose a hospital department to support during the event. This year’s title went to Dr. Eric Espinal and the Department of Surgery with 141 donors over Dr. Patrick Blakeslee and the Department of Medicine’s 140 donors. In 2010, the drive saw 124 donors. By 2011, that number nearly doubled with 246 registered donors. The American Red Cross also reported that Summa Western Reserve Hospital held two spots on their top 10 hospital blood drives for the Northern Ohio Blood Services Region in 2011. Summa Western Reserve Hospital is the Northeast Ohio region’s first physician-owned, for-profit, full service hospital. With a commitment to patient satisfaction and improved healthcare delivery, Summa Western Reserve Hospital offers general and acute care services, including a 24/7 emergency department. Summa Western Reserve Hospital is also a teaching facility and sponsors graduate medical education teaching programs in osteopathic medicine. The hospital is a majority physician-owned joint venture between Western Reserve Hospital Partners (which represents a collaboration of more than 200 physicians, including primary care physicians, surgeons and specialists) and Summa Health System.
