CORD:USE Cord Blood Bank Announces Partnership with Memorial Healthcare System
Date:2/10/2010

ORLANDO, Fla., Feb. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- CORD:USE Cord Blood Bank announced today that it is partnering with the Memorial Healthcare System, the fifth-largest public healthcare system in the nation, to collect umbilical cord blood that will be placed in a global registry for patients in need of a potentially life-saving transplant.

"The exclusive agreement with Memorial Healthcare System will allow CORD:USE to continue building the National Cord Blood Inventory with racially and ethnically diverse cord blood stem cell units, which is very important since patients are more likely to match someone from their own race or ethnicity," said Edward Guindi, M.D., President and CEO of CORD:USE.  

Memorial Healthcare System is highly regarded for its exceptional patient- and family-centered care.  "The partnership with Memorial Healthcare System is a wonderful addition to the network of hospitals who have signed exclusive agreements to be members of CORD:USE's expanding cord blood collection network," said Dr. Guindi.

"When we decided to offer cord blood donation as an option to our patients, we reviewed many companies," said Mary Roberts, Ed.D., RN., Director of Nursing, Maternal Services at Memorial Hospital West. "Our decision to partner with CORD:USE was based on their expertise in cord blood banking, their team of the world's pioneers and leaders in the field of cord blood, and their mission to provide an ethnically diverse inventory, which mirrors our community."
