St. Mary’s Regional Medical Center in Grand Junction is part of a nationwide effort to collect plasma from the blood of recovered COVID-19 patients. The antibody therapy St. Mary’s is exploring is Convalescent Plasma (CP) transfusions.

The approach involves giving patients an infusion of antibody-rich plasma from people who have recovered from the virus that causes COVID-19.

Donors must have received a confirmed COVID-19 PCR test result and be symptom free for at least 28 days. At this time, the program to collect plasma cannot accept donations from someone with only a positive antibody test.

Patients of the Telluride Regional Medical Center can print their PCR test from the clinic’s patient portal or they can call to have a test result printed.
