    Dr. Bernard Fantus established the world’s first blood bank on March 15, 1937 at Chicago’s Cook County Hospital in a blood bank preservation laboratory. The concept was replicated elsewhere, and the significance of his invention became especially apparent when World War II occurred and blood banks became vital tools in the care of wounded soldiers and civilians.
