Temple University Hospital Establishes

Public Cord Blood Donation Program

 

 

(Philadelphia, PA) – Temple University Hospital (TUH) is the first hospital in the city of Philadelphia to establish a public cord blood donation program, giving new parents the ability to give one life and save another: by bringing their baby into the world, and by donating stem cells from the otherwise-discarded umbilical cord blood.  These stem cells can be made widely available to patients in need of life-saving transplants.
