Referrals

The Fox Chase–Temple Bone Marrow Transplant Program welcomes your patients with hematologic malignancies. Our team accepts patients for leukemic inductions as well as those ready for transplant. We always appreciate seeing patients early in their treatment in order to help triage their illness from a transplant perspective.

When you refer a patient, our transplant coordinator team will provide guidance and gather the information required to process your request and schedule an appointment. For specific questions about a referral patient, you may contact our physicians directly. We can answer questions about eligibility or the potential next best course of action outside transplant considerations.

To refer a patient, please call 215-214-3122.

On behalf of all of us, thank you for your referrals. We look forward to working as part of your team.
