We are committed to excellence in patient care, research and education. Our multidisciplinary care team offers expertise and compassion. Our research team is at the forefront of improvements in conditioning regimens and alternative donor transplants including cord and mismatched donor transplant. We have several programs and features unique to our center, including the Adolescent and Young Adult Program (AYA), Transplant Optimization Program (TOP) for our older adult patients, and an outpatient stem cell transplant unit which allows us to offer outpatient transplant as an option to eligible patients. We also perform haplo-cord transplant which allows us to provide a way to transplant patients who do not have a fully matched related or unrelated donor. In haplo-cord transplant, we use partially matched haplo cells in combination with cord blood cells.

This center has been performing allogeneic transplants since 1985 and has been an NMDP transplant center since October 2001.
