San Diego is a tremendously diverse area. With several large military bases and a collection of internationally know research hospitals, San Diego can also parley its proximity to Los Angeles into a wide network of cord blood donation centers. The San Diego Blood Bank is the largest of all the cord blood donation centers. Parents wanting to privately store their child’s cord blood should consult with their OB and the delivering hospital.

In December 1950, the San Diego Blood Bank was established through the support of the San Diego County Medical Society. Throughout the years, the San Diego Blood Bank has stayed in the forefront of transfusion medicine, added donor centers and bloodmobiles to cover all of the region’s neighborhoods, diversified the blood bank’s donor base and formed lasting partnerships with organizations from all over the San Diego community.
An independent blood center serving some 50 hospitals in the Southern California Region, the San Diego Blood Bank is a member of America’s Blood Centers, the American Association of Blood Banks, and the Greater San Diego Chamber of Commerce.
