The Avera McKennan Transplant Institute has been performing transplants under consistent medical leadership since 2001. The program has achieved full FACT accreditation in autologous transplantation (for a fourth 3-year accreditation cycle), and allogeneic transplantation (for a third 3-year accreditation cycle), for transplantation, collection, and processing of hematopoietic stem cells. Avera is proud to have the only Bone Marrow Transplant Program in the region and offers physician outreach and telemedicine capabilities to serve our large geographic area.
