What to Expect

BMTs for children are done in specialized transplant centers within specialty hospitals, either a children’s hospital and/or an academic medical center that serves patients of all ages. The BMT itself is done as an inpatient procedure, while the transplant preparation and post-BMT care after discharge from the hosptial, are usually done on an outpatient basis.

For most Washington state children, BMT will done at Children’s Hospital and Regional Medical Center (CHRMC), which is part of the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA). Some of your child’s outpatient care may be done at SCCA clinics as well as at CHRMC.
