Treating blood disorders and cancers cannot be done alone. It requires the strong will of a patient, the support of a family, and the compassion and expertise of a world-renowned health care team.
Since the UAB Bone Marrow Transplantation and Cell Therapy Program opened in 1991, over 1,700 transplants have been performed. We have dedicated each day to lead with innovation and serve with compassion, along with the most advanced treatment methods in a comfortable, cutting–edge facility. Each patient is treated by a team of health-care professionals dedicated to his or her care throughout the transplant process. We are constantly building a work environment of professionalism where each person is valued and respected. Our sole focus is ensuring the best possible results, the greatest quality of life, and the hope for a healthier future. Here at the UAB Bone Marrow Transplant Program, we celebrate life every day.
Our unit currently has 16 inpatient beds, an adjacent 24/7 outpatient clinic, and plans to expand the unit in the near future. We provide both autologous and allogeneic stem cell transplants, including haploidentical and umbilical cord transplants if necessary, and our program leads the nation in high-risk AML transplants. Our unit is staffed with physicians, pharmacists, nurses, nurse practitioners, clinical care coordinators, transplant coordinators, patient care technicians, research/data staff, social workers, nutritionists, and support staff who are dedicated to provide the best care for patients throughout the transplant process.
