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.
KBC, the largest FDA regulated blood bank in Kentucky, is a non-profit organization dedicated to ensuring a safe, adequate blood supply for patients at nearly 70 Kentucky hospitals and clinics in more than 60 counties. KBC relies on volunteers to donate 400 pints of blood per day to meet area patients’ needs. Over the last year, KBC distributed nearly 130,000 blood components.
