SBC Business Update»

Effective October 1, 2015, Stanford Health Care has entered into an agreement to aquire Stanford Blood Center. This change in ownership aligns Stanford Blood Center more closely with the health care community and the patients we serve. Our structure and mission to serve patients are not changing. This agreement does not result in any reduction in blood center staffing, nor does it affect how we collect and process blood or perform testing, or in our blood collection and processing locations. This agreement does not affect our ability to accept specimens and perform histocompatibility testing. We remain a community blood center, committed to helping local patients in need. With your partnership, we look forward to continuing to serve our community.
