On Sept. 8, 2014, St. David’s Women’s Center of Texas, located on the campus of St. David’s North Austin Medical Center, joined the Texas Cord Blood Bank’s (TCBB) cord blood collection program, making it a certified cord blood collection site. The TCBB, housed on the South Texas Blood & Tissue Center’s San Antonio campus, is a nonprofit program established in 2001 to collect umbilical cord blood, which can benefit patients—usually children—suffering from a number of potentially fatal diseases.
