The Story Behind Americord
A Family Bank, From The Start
Marty and Tina, co-Founders of Americord, embarked on their journey in 2008 inspired by a deeply personal experience – the preservation of their own daughter's cord blood stem cells. Recognizing a critical gap in the field, they have wholeheartedly dedicated their life and career to revolutionizing cord blood banking for families nationwide. With a foundation built on their personal journey, Marty and Tina have nurtured Americord into a family bank from the start.
Americord was founded in 2008 with a commitment to helping our customers and their children live longer, healthier lives. We set out to pioneer the development of new cord blood and tissue banking technologies and innovations to better achieve these goals and serve our customers.
Americord’s commitment to innovation is never complete. We continuously research ways to improve our collection, processing, and banking procedures. We often partner with institutions nation-wide and around the globe to advance not only the technology that makes our service possible, but also the R&D that will make the regenerative medicine more viable in the future.
Most importantly, we are in constant contact with our growing family—our clients—regarding innovations we make.
Americord’s mission is to help people live longer, healthier lives. We are rooted not only in the belief that regenerative medicine is the medicine of the future, but more importantly that the products we offer to our customers can make an impact on their lives today. We have taken the steps needed to ensure that we can consistently provide the highest quality service in the industry.
