National Marrow Donor Program
Legacy Health is the only designated collection and apheresis center in Oregon for the National Marrow Donor Program.
- The program is a non-profit effort that links patients in need of a bone marrow or stem cell transplant with a healthy volunteer donor. This donation is a gift of life for patients who do not have a suitable donor within their family.
- Healthy NMDP donors from throughout Oregon and Southwest Washington undergo bone marrow harvest or blood stem cell apheresis at Legacy Good Samaritan, under the care of the transplant program physicians and staff.
