Freedom Plasma opens new donation clinic at Euclid

October 7—Freedom Plasma will host a ribbon cutting for its brand new location from noon to 2 p.m., October 10, at 15609 Lake Shore Blvd.

The grand opening will be free to the public and will include a tour of the new facility.

“We want to show our appreciation to the community and also allow them to see what we do and how we do it,” said Ronald Myles, operations center manager for the new location. “That’s the driving force behind this, letting the community know we’re here and part of the community that cares about the well-being of its citizens.”

The new facility is the only location within a 4-mile radius of the Euclid area that can facilitate plasma donation.

Myles said those wishing to donate need current identification and a photo of their Social Security number along with proof of residency. After their information is removed, they are then reviewed by a medical professional to determine if they are eligible to donate.

Those who donate plasma will be compensated, although the price varies depending on the weight of the individual.

“We are very happy to donate to the community,” said Myles. “We also help the economy of the community because people can earn money for their donations which they can then reinvest in the community. We also help by creating jobs in the neighborhood while doing our best to improve the overall health of our community at the same time.”

Myles said they are excited to be a part of Euclid and hope they help make the community healthier.
