Overview

Established in 2012 and located in Memphis, Tennessee, the Methodist Healthcare Blood and Marrow Transplant Program is a collaborative effort between Methodist Healthcare, West Cancer Center, and the University of Tennessee Health Science Center. The program provides transplantation for adults with conditions such as leukemia, lymphoma, multiple myeloma, bone marrow failure syndromes, and aplastic anemia. Transplants are performed using all donor types. This may entail using a persons own stem cells or cells from a donor. Donor cells may come from either conventional sources such as a matched sibling or a fully matched unrelated donor or from alternative sources such as a haplo-identical (half-match relative) donor or umbilical cord blood. The program offers inpatient and outpatient services and also provides extracorporeal photopheresis. The program is accredited by FACT and AABB and continually strives to achieve patient outcomes that exceed the national average.

This center has been performing allogeneic transplants since 2012 and has been an NMDP/Be The Match transplant center since July 2016.
