The Blood and Marrow Transplant program at Nationwide Children's is accredited by the Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapy (FACT) for all components of both allogeneic and autologous bone marrow transplants, which include the clinical program and stem cell collection. This accreditation certifies that Children’s program has passed rigorous standards of practice for all of these facilities.
While BMT is used to treat some cancers, there are a growing number of genetic and metabolic diseases and disorders BMT can treat also. At Nationwide Children's Hospital, about one third of the patients receiving BMT are being treated for conditions other than cancer.
At Nationwide Children's only physicians and nurses with highly specialized training in pediatric BMT treat patients at Nationwide Children's. BMT-trained nurse practitioners remain on the unit around the clock to provide the best care for our patients, day or night. In many rooms, in-room cameras allow caregivers to closely observe patients, especially the smallest and most critical.
