Good news for hematologic cancer patients in need of a hematopoietic stem cell transplant living in the southwestern United States.
The Virginia G. Piper Cancer Center at Scottsdale Healthcare recently announced the addition of a hematopoietic stem cell transplant cancer treatment program at the facility's new Cancer Transplant Institute.
The program is expected to attract hematologic cancer patients including those with lymphomas in desperate need of a bone marrow transplant.
Already a member of the National Marrow Transplant Program (NMDP), which allows it to perform unrelated donor transplants, the Cancer Transplant Institute at the Virginia G. Piper Cancer Center is accredited by the Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapy (FACT) for autologous and allogeneic adult transplants.
