BACKGROUND NOTE

The establishment of an open-heart surgery program in Lincoln, Nebraska, meant physicians with the Lancaster County Medical Society needed a reliable source of blood for hospital patients. The Society responded by forming what is now known as Nebraska Community Blood Bank in 1968 to meet the need for a safe and stable supply of blood. Over the next five decades, they expanded their capabilities and outreach to fulfill their mission of helping to save and sustain lives through blood donation and to benefit the communities they serve.
