Nationally Recognized Blood and Morrow Transplant Services
Franciscan Health is the hospital partner for Indiana Blood and Marrow Transplantation (IBMT), which pioneered the first transplant program for blood cancer in Indiana. This groundbreaking work, including cutting-edge research, is carried on today at Franciscan Health's Cancer Center in Indianapolis.
IBMT is a research-oriented organization, providing patients with the best assets of both academic and private practice settings. While its physicians and staff are on the forefront of leading bone marrow transplant technology, the patient still has the benefit of being able to access fully credentialed physicians at any hour or day or night. IBMT is highly regarded nationally and was one of the first five programs in the nation accredited by the Foundation for Accreditation of Cellular Therapy (FACT). FACT accreditation demonstrates commitment to quality in cellular therapy and blood and marrow transplantation through adherence to rigorous standards, as verified by periodic inspections and peer review. Our nationally recognized physicians have performed hundreds of stem cell transplants in outpatient and inpatient settings. Indiana Blood and Marrow Transplantation provides you access to the latest research and clinical trials and specialized treatments.
IBMT has one of two photopheresis centers in Indiana. Patients with CTCl, organ rejection or Graft versus Host Disease can now be treated close to home in a personalized, convenient setting.
IBMT offers treatments for both autoloous and allogenic patients. Our unique outpatient clinic model enables eligible patients the opportunity to undergo the transplant process in the outpatient clinic during the day and stay at home or nearby local accomodations at night.
Indiana Blood and Marrow Transplantation is the name for the Stem Cell Transplant program which was established as a partnership between Cancer Center Associates and SpectraCare Management Services. Since 2006 the hospital partner has been Franciscan Health Indianapolis. The IBMT Outpatient Clinic and Administrative Offices are physically located in Franciscan Health Indianapolis. The new inpatient unit opened in 2012.
