Dr  David Stevens

LEXINGTON, Ky. – Kentucky Blood Center’s Community Room has been renamed the David B. Stevens, M.D. Room in honor of its longtime board member and volunteer.

Dr.  Stevens  was  the  founding  chairman  of  the  board  at  the  blood center, when it was started by the Lexington Medical Society in the Perkins  Pancake  House  on  Limestone.  He  has  been  a  regular  blood donor and KBC volunteer since then and recently finished out a term as Kentucky  Blood  Center  board  chair,  completing  45  years of commitment to KBC.

“Dr. Stevens has donated countless hours and energy to a variety of organizations and causes to make Lexington a better place,” said KBC President and CEO Bill Reed. “While we appreciate what he’s done for us  at  KBC,  we  also thank  him  for  being  one  of  Lexington’s  most respected and committed civic volunteers.”

The Stevens Room, located in the Beaumont Donor Center at 3121 Beaumont Centre Circle in Lexington, is available for use by community groups.
