NW Marrow Transplant Program

Oregon Health & Science University and the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute are part of a collaborative clinical program with Legacy Health System called the Northwest Marrow Transplant Program (NWMTP). The program offers every available type of blood and marrow transplant procedure to patients throughout the region. Transplant services are provided at Legacy Good Samaritan Hospital, OHSU Hospital and OHSU Doernbecher Children's Hospital. This collaboration pools the expertise of hematologists  and oncologists and increases the opportunities for patients and families to benefit from the most recent advances of basic, translational, and clinical research in stem cell transplantation. Since its formation in 1997, the Program has performed 1975 transplants.  NWMTP received accreditation by the Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapy (FACT)  in December of 2000 as the first multi-center clinical program to receive this national accreditation. Reaccreditation was received in March 2004 and again, most recently, in May 2007.
