CORD:USE Announces Partnership With Scottsdale Shea Hospital

ORLANDO, Fla., Nov. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- CORD:USE Cord Blood Bank is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with Scottsdale Shea Hospital to provide the expectant parents who deliver at Scottsdale Shea the option to donate or privately bank their babies' cord blood using CORD:USE's high quality services. 

CORD:USE is one of the high quality cord blood banks chosen by HRSA of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to help build the National Cord Blood Inventory (NCBI).  Accordingly, the cord blood units donated through the CORD:USE Cord Blood Collection Program at Scottsdale Shea Hospital, which meet the necessary criteria, will be placed in the NCBI to be available for patients in need of a potentially life-saving transplant.  This program which will lead to saving countless lives will commence in the beginning of 2013.    

Scottsdale Shea Hospital is highly regarded for the exceptional care that it provides to the patients from its community.  "We are honored to work with Scottsdale Shea Hospital to offer expectant parents our important and potentially lifesaving services," said Edward Guindi, M.D., President and CEO of CORD:USE.

"We did a great deal of diligence on cord blood banks before deciding to move forward with this partnership with CORD:USE.  Everything that we learned about CORD:USE's public and family cord blood banks, their technologies, procedures and renowned team led us to believe that CORD:USE is the gold standard of public cord blood banking," said Pauline Hrenchir, Clinical Director Women Services at Scottsdale Shea Hospital.
