Cleveland Cord Blood Center collects donations from 2 hospitals in the Cleveland area with NO advanced registration. The education process starts in OB offices so that an advanced consent can be obtained while the mother is under no distress.  If necessary, mothers in labor can give a pre-consent to collect the blood and a final consent to bank the blood after delivery. The program operates 24/7, but the lab is not open on Sunday.

The Cleveland Cord Blood Center works with philanthropic foundations to raise funding for their public bank. They have received generous support from the Atlanta-based Katz Foundation. Cleveland Cord Blood Center became the 7th public cord blood bank in the USA to receive the FDA Biologics License on 1 Sept. 2016
