Blood and Marrow Transplant Service
The Blood and Marrow Transplant Service offer patients state-of-the-art facilities for cell therapies in the treatment of cancer and blood or bone marrow disorders in adults and children.
Patient care and education is provided by a multidisciplinary team that includes not only the specialty trained physicians but also dedicated transplant coordinators, nurse practitioners, clinical pharmacists and other allied health practitioners.
Inpatient care is provided in a specialized In-Patient Unit designed with sterile isolation rooms with HEPA filter system. Acute outpatient care is likewise provided whenever possible. For those who live out of town, there are apartments adjacent to the hospital that are offered for short or long-term lease.
Using peripheral blood stem cells, we perform allogeneic or autologous transplants. For those in need of an allogenic stem cell transplant and do not have a complete matched sibling donor, the patient can undergo a mismatch transplant or haplo-identical transplant in our facility. A parent or child may be a potential donor.
We are committed to ensuring that our patients and their families receive the best care available at St. Luke’s Medical Center. A specially trained team of health care professionals from Bone Marrow Transplant Specialist, to nurses, pharmacists and child family life specialists, support our patients and their families throughout the entire process.
