Overall center survival


Patient survival information for this center

This center's actual 1-year survival results are below 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 255 patients.

The actual 1-year survival of these patients is 66.1%.

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 68.4% and 78.7%.

For help with understanding these statistics, please see Understanding Transplant Outcomes.

For overall survival for all patients transplanted with a specific disease, please see U.S. Patient Survival report at bloodcell.transplant.hrsa.gov.

Treatments may be similar for diseases within a group. It might be helpful to look at centers that have done transplants for a specific disease and centers that have done transplants for any corresponding broad disease categories.

Centers are not required to report autologous transplants so the numbers might be incomplete.
