Our Blood Management Program provides specialized care to maximize the patient’s own blood supply without the use of blood transfusions.

At Health Quest, we are committed to meeting the specialized needs of our patients, including those who prefer or require options for medical or surgical care without a blood transfusion.

Our Blood Management Program is designed for patients who wish to avoid the use of donor blood or donor primary blood components (red cells, white cells, platelets or plasma) during surgical procedures. The program uses a variety of techniques to maximize the patient’s own blood cell production and to minimize blood loss by utilizing special blood conservation methods.

There are many reasons you may prefer a bloodless or "transfusion-free" treatment method. If you are susceptible to anemia, blood management helps to identify and treat anemia before surgery as well as avoiding some of the known risks of transfusion therapy. Or you may hold a religious conviction that prevents you from receiving blood transfusions.

At Putnam Hospital Center and Vassar Brothers Medical Center, many physicians and surgeons, representing nearly all the medical subspecialties, participate in the Blood Management Program. All are fully trained and experienced in blood management procedures and techniques.
