About the center
The Levine Cancer Institute (LCI) at Atrium Health was formed in 2010 as part of an innovative vision to deliver world-class cancer care across the Carolinas. The Adult Transplant Program was established at in 2012 utilizing a multidisciplinary approach to comprehensive transplant and cellular therapy care. The first Stem Cell Transplant was performed in March of 2014 and FACT accreditation was awarded in March of 2016. We currently perform autologous transplants, related and unrelated allogeneic transplants, and Chimeric Antigen Receptor (CAR-T) Cell Therapy. Our success is driven by the impact we have on community and the patients we serve through innovation and clinical research.
This center has been performing allogeneic transplants since 2014 and has been an NMDP/Be The Match transplant center since March 2017.
