Upstate Medical University formally opens cord-blood bank at Community campus

Upstate BuildingONONDAGA, N.Y. — Upstate Medical University has formally opened its cord-blood bank, which is located at its Community campus at 4910 Broad Road in Onondaga.

The $15 million, 20,000-square-foot facility includes a processing laboratory and cryogenic-storage containers that can store nearly 14,500 units of cord blood.

It is one of two public cord-blood banks in New York, meaning it doesn’t charge a fee for a cord-blood donation and donated cord blood is available to “anyone who needs it,” Upstate Medical said in a news release.

Funding for the project is made possible by a $15 million grant that New York State Sen. John DeFrancisco (R–Syracuse) secured, Upstate Medical said.
