Mayo Blood Draw Rooms
Unique to Gift of Life Transplant House and in partnership with Mayo Clinic, guests can schedule their early morning blood draws in the convenience of their “own” home. The blood draw rooms are staffed with Mayo employees and are open from 7:00am – 9:15am Monday through Friday.
Visits from other family members are so important to recovery and while children under the age of 14 can’t be in the house for the protection of our immunosuppressed guests, we do provide family rooms that feature a separate, entrance, TV, games and comfortable seating. Family rooms can be reserved at no charge.
