Emergency Blood Coverage (EBC)

With a history of over 25 years, the Emergency Blood Coverage Program ensures that Greenwich Hospital has a sufficient supply of blood and blood products. This program benefits our family, friends and neighbors who are patients at Greenwich Hospital and require an immediate transfusion.

Volunteers act on an on-call basis:

        Monday -Thursday (5:00PM-9:00AM)

OR

        Friday (5:00PM) -Monday (9:00AM).   

By wearing a pager, volunteers are contacted by Greenwich Hospital and instructed to pick up blood at another local hospital and bring it to Greenwich Hospital.

If you would like more information about the Emergency Blood Coverage Program or would like to volunteer your time, please contact the Volunteer Office at 203.869.8444 or click here.
