Expert staff for transplant patient care
Our autologous transplant physicians meet specific credentialing criteria based on national standards set forth by the Foundation of Cellular Therapy. The nursing staff receives specialty training in transplantation and must undergo annual re-certification.
Legacy provides cancer support services to help transplant patients and families with their psychosocial, spiritual and rehabilitation needs. The support team may include:
- Medical social worker
- Occupational therapist
- Physical therapist
- Relaxation therapist
Two transplant nurse coordinators assist patients with:
- Pre-transplant evaluation
- Patient and family education
- Insurance authorization
- Coordination of care from initial referral to long-term follow-up
The program's research coordinator compiles data reports and statistics for national organizations, clinical trials groups, registries, and insurers. Legacy participates in local and national clinical trials involving autologous stem cell transplantation.
The inpatient transplant unit has six dedicated transplant patient rooms with HEPA filtered air systems. Outpatient services are available for transplant patients seven days a week in the Day Treatment Unit.
