Statement from Dr. John Dornan regarding recovered COVID-19 patient plasma donations

Dr. John Dornan is Horizon Health Network’s Chief of Staff and Endocrinologist at Horizon’s Saint John Regional Hospital 

While we appreciate the outpouring of community support to assist with the COVID-19 pandemic, and the many calls we received following a Facebook post circulated on blood donation from recovered COVID-19 patients, we ask that you do not call the hospital with offers to donate blood. 

Horizon cannot comment on specific patients or their treatments, but we know there is a Facebook post being circulated related to this topic. Horizon cannot validate the information in this post.

Approaches to the treatment of COVID-19 are evolving quickly; if there is a need to involve recovered COVID-19 patients, those patients will be contacted directly.
