Overview

Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) unites doctors from Fred Hutch Cancer Research Center, UW Medicine, and Seattle Childrens in one world-class treatment center. SCCA's purpose is to provide state-of-the-art, patient and family centered care; support the conduct of cancer clinical research and education; enhance access to improved cancer interventions; and advance the standard of cancer care regionally and beyond. Our goal, every day, is to turn cancer patients into cancer survivors. Our purpose is to lead the world in the prevention and treatment of cancer. These three entities form one extraordinary group whose sole mission is the pursuit of better, longer, richer lives for our patients.

This center has been performing allogeneic transplants since 1969 and has been an NMDP/Be The Match transplant center since February 1989.

Attending physicians

Adult - Fredrick Appelbaum, Merav Bar, Pamela Becker, Antonio Bedalov, Melinda Biernacki, Ryan Cassaday, Aude Chaupis, Victor Chow , David Coffey, Laura Connelly-Smith, Andrew Cowan, Joachim Deeg, Kristine Doney, Mary Flowers, Jordan Gauthier , George Georges, Ajay Gopal, Damian Green, Geoff Hill, Leona Holmberg, Hans-Peter Kiem, Elizabeth Krakow, Stephanie Lee, Edward Libby, Michael Linenberger, David Maloney, Marco Mielcarek, Filippo Milano, Johnnie Orozco, Effie Petersdorf, Salit Rachel, Jerald Radich, Brenda Sandmaier, Bart Scott, Mazyar Shadman, Mohammed Sorror, Emily Stevens, F.

Adult and pediatric

Other programs and services

Seattle Cancer Care Alliance represents a union of patients and doctors, physicians and researchers, care and cures in the pursuit of better, longer, richer lives for our patients.

Above all, we exist to move patients forward, past boundaries and toward hope, beyond fear and closer to discovery. SCCA is the intersection of compassion and hard science. Where a real difference can be made today and true progress happens tomorrow. This uniquely bold and inventive approach truly sets us apart.

We treat care differently, and because of that, we see patients differently, too. Our care combines powerful science with devoted collaboration, where boundary-pushing discovery happens care and science working together.

It is our fundamental belief that working in partnership with our patients is essential to who we are today and in the future.

We offer many services to help patients and their families through transplant, including local, reduced rate housing, (including Ronald McDonald House for pediatric families).

Overall center survival


Patient survival information for this center

This center's actual 1-year survival results are similar to the expected rate for this center.

The survival information we have for this center includes ONLY:

  1. Patients who had their FIRST ALLOGENEIC transplant (cells from a related or unrelated donor/cord blood) during 2015, 2016, 2017, and
  2. Who had their transplant at a U.S. transplant center, and
  3. Who had follow-up information provided by the transplant center for analysis

For this center, we have survival information for 809 patients.

The actual 1-year survival of these patients is 75.6%.

Compared to similar patients transplanted at all centers in the U.S., we expect that the 1-year survival for patients at this center to be in a range between 70.7% and 76.5%.
