[Source: The East Valley Tribune] – The state’s first facility to collect stem cell-rich umbilical cord blood from hospitals in Arizona is nearing completion in Gilbert.

The Celebration Stem Cell Centre, under construction adjacent to Mercy Gilbert Medical Center at Val Vista Drive and Loop 202, will serve as a cord blood donation bank and research facility that will offer genetic counseling, officials say.

The center will also store cord blood for paying clients who want to preserve it for later use.
