About Community Blood Center/Community Tissue Services
Community Blood Center/Community Tissue Services operates solely to satisfy the need for blood, allograft tissue and specialized laboratory services. As a not-for-profit, 501c(3) organization, CBC/CTS delivers the confidence and tradition of 50 years of service to those hospitals it serves.
Both the American Association of Blood Banks and the American Association of Tissue Banks accredit CBC/CTS. CBC is also a member of America's Blood Centers, a national network of non-profit, local, independent community blood centers that collect about half (47 percent) of the U.S. blood supply.
The Community Blood Center (CBC) began operation in September 1964 in the Fidelity Medical Building on South Main Street in Dayton, Ohio. CBC was established to meet the vital need for a centralized system of blood banking to effectively aid local area patients. In 1964, CBC served two Dayton area hospitals, and by 1965 had expanded to providing the blood product requirements of all general hospitals in Dayton. Since 1967, CBC has grown to its current service area of 24 hospitals in 15 counties.
In November 1986, CBC expanded operations and started the Dayton Regional Tissue Bank. In 1994, the ...name was changed to Community Tissue Services (CTS). ?In addition to the Dayton Headquarters, CTS has operations in the following locations:
