A blood collection drive scheduled for today (Monday, Jan. 28) has been cancelled.
The collection was cancelled after Inland Northwest Blood Center personnel arrived at Coulee Medical Center’s Professional Building A (the former clinic building) and found it not ready.
“They chose to go back to Spokane and hopefully return in a couple of days in one of their coaches,” local drive coordinator volunteer Bonnie Femling said. “Please hang on to your blood and come to donate it when they return!”
Coulee Medical Center spokesman Steve Becker said he's still looking into what happened. He noted the space has been set up as a classroom and that CMC's relationship with INBC is an important one for the community.
This report has been updated. An earlier version said the room was being remodeled, which was in error.
