Through our highly ranked Bone Marrow Transplant Program, Fox Chase Cancer Center and Temple Health physicians provide bone marrow and stem cell transplantation to improve long-term outcomes for patients with blood cancers and other blood-related disorders. Our multidisciplinary program includes board-certified hematologic oncologists with specific expertise in transplantation.

We perform 100–150 blood and bone marrow transplants each year at our state-of-the-art facility, which is solely dedicated to performing transplants.

Our BMT Program is fully accredited by the Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapy (FACT)—the gold standard of excellence for blood and bone marrow transplant programs in the United States—and the National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP). We meet and exceed the rigorous criteria established by these organizations based on the high number of transplants we perform, our level of expertise, and the support personnel available for our patients.

Every member of our team is specially trained in blood and bone marrow transplantation and has extensive experience in managing all transplant types.

We offer allogeneic, autologous, and haploidentical transplantation, using cells from your own body or from matching donors. The type of transplant you receive is determined by your diagnosis, stage of your disease, and your overall health and age.

In addition, we offer numerous clinical trials that help us provide the most recent advances and most promising treatments for these conditions. Our goal is to achieve the best possible outcome for you by addressing every aspect of your physical and psychological well-being.

Why Choose the Fox Chase-Temple University Hospital Bone Marrow Transplant Program?

  • Fox Chase has received the highest designation from the National Cancer Institute (NCI) as a Comprehensive Cancer Center, an elite center recognized for excellence in cancer treatment, research, prevention, and education. This means our patients receive sophisticated care and have access to a wide range of state-of-the-art treatment options.
  • Our physicians have performed thousands of bone marrow and stem cell transplants since the BMT Program began—including allogeneic, autologous, and haploidentical transplantations.
  • Our BMT Program is one of few programs in the country to offer bloodless transplant procedures for patients who request this complex technique.
  • Older patients in need of transplants are not turned away from our program due to their age. Nearly 25 percent of our patients are older than age 65.
  • In 2020, the BMT Program was reaccredited for adult allogeneic and autologous hematopoietic progenitor cell transplantation, peripheral blood cellular therapy product collection, and cellular therapy product processing with minimal manipulation by the Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapy (FACT). Also included was a new accreditation for immune effector cells.
  • We actively participate in our own investigator-initiated research and trials from the ECOG-ACRIN Cancer Research Group and the Blood and Marrow Transplant Clinical Trials Network (BMT CTN). Our researchers work collaboratively to bring the most promising discoveries from the laboratory into the clinical setting, where they can directly impact patients.
  • Our multidisciplinary approach allows patients to benefit from the opinions of many experienced physicians. We work closely to develop care plans to meet the specific needs of each patient and meet regularly to discuss patient progress.
  • We offer patients, their caregivers, and their families a wide range of support services to address the emotional, physical, and social challenges that often come up before, during, and after bone marrow transplantation.

Blue Distinction Centers (BDC) met overall quality measures, developed with input from the medical community. A Local Blue Plan may require additional criteria for providers located in its own service area; for details, contact your Local Blue Plan. Blue Distinction Centers+ (BDC+) also met cost measures that address consumers’ need for affordable healthcare. Each provider’s cost of care is evaluated using data from its Local Blue Plan. Providers in CA, ID, NY, PA, and WA may lie in two Local Blue Plans’ areas, resulting in two evaluations for cost of care; and their own Local Blue Plans decide whether one or both cost of care evaluation(s) must meet BDC+ national criteria. National criteria for BDC and BDC+ are displayed on www.bcbs.com. Individual outcomes may vary. For details on a provider’s in-network status or your own policy’s coverage, contact your Local Blue Plan and ask your provider before making an appointment. Neither Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association nor any Blue Plans are responsible for non-covered charges or other losses or damages resulting from Blue Distinction or other provider finder information or care received from Blue Distinction or other providers.
