The Division of Hematology and Blood & Marrow Transplantation was founded in 1982. The program’s staff includes experts in both autologous transplants, which use stem cells from the patient, and allogeneic procedures, which use stem cells from a donor.
The program, a part of UK Markey Cancer Center, is accredited by the Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapy. It is also a collection center for the National Marrow Donor Program. The immuno-molecular pathology laboratory is certified by both the American Society for Histocompatibility
and Cytogenetics, as well as the Clinical Laboratory Improvements Amendments.

Because UK HealthCare takes a cooperative, highly integrated approach to medicine, patients in the Blood and Marrow Transplant Program also have access to experts in every medical and surgical subspecialty. The Blood and Marrow Transplant Program also employs a dietitian and a team of social workers for both inpatient and outpatient consultation. Four disease-team leaders coordinate inpatient and outpatient care.
