Fox Chase Cancer Center physicians and Temple Health staff provide bone marrow and stem cell transplantation to improve long-term outcomes for patients with blood cancers and other blood-related disorders. Our board-certified hematologic oncologists perform more than 100 blood and bone marrow transplants a year. That number continues to rise, as we recently opened a new 11,500-square-foot outpatient clinic. The state-of-the-art facility occupies the entire fifth floor of the Patient Care Center at Jeanes Hospital.

Our physicians and nurses provide both inpatient and outpatient services, thereby streamlining the transplant process. We offer allogeneic, autologous, and haploidentical transplantation. The type of transplant you receive is determined by your diagnosis, stage of disease, overall health, and age.

Every member of our team is specially trained in blood and bone marrow transplantation and has extensive experience in managing all transplant types. Our goal is to achieve the best possible outcome for you by addressing every aspect of your physical and psychological
well-being.
