Overview

Blood cancers affect the production and function of your blood cells. Stem cells in your bone marrow mature and develop into red blood cells, white blood cells, or platelets. In most blood cancers, the normal blood cell development process is interrupted by uncontrolled growth of an abnormal type of blood cell. These abnormal blood cells, or cancerous cells, prevent your blood from performing many of its functions. Each year, thousands of people develop blood diseases, such as leukemia, Hodgkin lymphoma, non-Hodgkin lymphoma and multiple myeloma that are treatable with blood stem cell or bone marrow transplants.

The Blood Cancer Center at Jewish Hospital Mercy Health, with more than 20 years of clinical and research expertise, has performed over 2,000 successful bone marrow transplant surgeries. No other adult hospital program within a 100-mile radius of Greater Cincinnati has come close to performing as many successful transplants. The Blood Cancer Center is the most advanced adult blood and bone marrow transplant program in the region and its overall patient survival rates rival those of MD Anderson and the Cleveland Clinic, and are ahead of noted facilities such as Cedars Sinai and the Mayo Clinic.

Our suburban Cincinnati location provides easy access for patients and their families living in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. Research protocols ensure that all patients are evaluated to receive cutting-edge treatments. And the 23-bed step-down and intensive care unit offers state-of-the-art care that minimizes stress and maximizes comfort for patients and their families. Using stem cells from blood, or bone marrow for transplant, we treat patients with a wide range of diseases.
