Blood and Marrow Transplant

Blood and marrow transplantation, or BMT, is a procedure in which healthy stem cells from a donor's blood or bone marrow are injected into a recipient's vein. The new cells travel through the bloodstream to the recipient's bone marrow. Stem cells are cells that can produce red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets.

About the Saint Francis Blood & Marrow
Transplant Program

The Saint Francis Blood and Marrow Transplantation Program is a community-based option for patients requiring dose-intensive chemotherapy, autologous, allogeneic or syngeneic transplantation services.

Established in 1987, the program provides around-the-clock inpatient and outpatient services in a "clinic without walls" approach. This method provides continuity of patient care through all phases of services.
The Blood and Marrow Transplant team is an interdisciplinary group that includes staff from oncology nursing, pharmacy, laboratory, social services, nutrition services, physical therapy and pastoral care working together to enhance patient care.

Nationally Accredited BMT Services

The Saint  Francis Blood and Marrow Transplantation Program is an Apheresis Center and Collection Center for the National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP); a Transplant Center for the Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG); as well as a registry center for the Center for International Blood and Bone Marrow Transplant Research (CIBMTR). The program participates in private pharmaceutical studies and federally funded clinical trials through the National Cancer Institute (NCI). In addition, the program is an autologous collection and processing program accredited through the Foundation for Accreditation of Cellular Therapy (FACT).
Through these efforts, our goal is simple: to partner with patients and their families to provide hope and options for a brighter, healthier future.
