About the center
UMMMC is a large teaching hospital in Central Massachusetts. Our FACT-accredited BMT program is comprehensive, offering the latest technologies including adult cord blood transplants. We have 8 in-patient beds and 1 out-patient bed in the HEPA-filtered BMT unit and provide experienced, dedicated multidisciplinary care. We strive to find a match of all of our patients. We offer matched and mismatched related and unrelated donor, including cord blood, transplants for our patients. The program has expertise in stem cell transplantation for the elderly.
This center has been performing allogeneic transplants since 1994 and has been an NMDP/Be The Match transplant center since December 1997.
