Americord Brings Cord Blood Collection Kits Anytime, Anywhere

Posted by Americord

NEW YORK, NY, May 19, 2016: Americord, the fastest growing cord blood bank in the country and a leader in the advancement of umbilical cord blood, cord tissue, and placenta tissue banking, announced today that they’ve launched a new service to help clients with early and unexpected deliveries.

Aptly named Americord Rush, the company strategically stores their 3-in-1 Collection Kits near hospitals for same-day delivery. Mothers in labor around the country can now receive their kits within a matter of hours. While these kits are typically shipped weeks before the mother’s due date, a more urgent delivery method is sometimes needed.

“As our customer base continues to grow, so does the number of unexpected deliveries,” says Americord CIO Christina Roccos. “We were faced with an interesting dilemma – how do we address this distinct client need while continuing to scale our business? Americord Rush was the perfect solution.”

Americord Rush is the company’s latest innovation in cord blood and tissue banking. Along with Cord Blood 2.0, which collects up to twice the number of stem cells, the Americord Rush program ensures that every client has the opportunity to invest in their family’s future.

The Americord Rush program is currently operating in all 50 states and Puerto Rico and has successfully rushed over a hundred kits to families across the country.
