Overview

The Colorado Blood Cancer Institute at Presbyterian St. Luke's Medical Center is the largest most comprehensive transplant program in the Rocky Mountain Region. We offer allogeneic, autologous, cord blood and haploidentical transplantation for all hematologic and malignant disease indications. In addition, we also offer CAR-T cell therapy and a wide variety of innovative treatment protocols and research studies.

This center has been performing allogeneic transplants since 1991 and has been an NMDP/Be The Match transplant center since May 1997.

Other programs and services

Our CBCI Long Term Follow Up/ Survivorship Program has been established for over a decade. Patients are seen by an advanced practice provider or physician at 1 year post stem cell transplant and annually thereafter. The assessment and education is focused on long-term effects, vaccinations, secondary cancer prevention, reproductive health, medications and mental health. We provide multidisciplinary post-transplant care to all of our patients. Allogeneic patients are followed closely by a specially trained RN serving as the primary contact providing a continuum of care after discharge from the hospital.
Our Cancer Care Nutrition team is available for pre-treatment consultation to maximize your nutritional status prior to therapy. Our team also provides inpatient and outpatient support and consultation during treatment and post-treatment to maximize your recovery. Each member of our nutrition team has a special interest in oncology and a nutrition sub-specialty that provides an expert nutrition knowledge base related to cancer, blood disorders, autoimmune disorders and stem cell transplantation.
Our psychosocial team consists of psychologists and social workers that have been trained to meet the needs of our patient population. They establish a relationship with patients prior to transplant and support them throughout the transplant process as their needs evolve.
Healing Arts-services are provided to extended stay patients to offer encouragement and get patients involved in activities. They focus on giving patients creative means through which to cope with and relieve their stress.
