Email News Alerts

Blood. It's an essential component of any hospital's operations, because like the air we breathe, it's something no human being can live without.


St. Mary's Regional Health Center is not exempted from this need. But unlike many of its counterparts in other communities, the Detroit Lakes hospital gets its blood from local sources -- specifically, its own blood bank.
