Bone Marrow Transplant Inpatient Unit
Our Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT) / Stem Cell Transplant Unit is the largest of its kind in the Southwest. Designed with comfort in mind, the rooms are playfully decorated and because of an innovative air-handling system, there's no need for patients or their visitors to wear a mask.
Our 15 bed Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT) / Stem Cell Transplant Unit is located on the 8th floor of the West Tower. It is the largest of its kind in the Southwest.
The inpatient transplant unit is uniquely designed with children's needs in mind. A specialized HEPA air-filtration system allows children to safely leave their rooms and roam freely in the BMT unit with limited risk of contracting infections. This allows them to socialize in a cheerful home-like environment, which includes an exercise room, a playroom, complete with toys and computers, and several family rooms. Because of the innovative air-handling system, there is no need for visitors to wear masks or gowns, which reduces the child's feeling of isolation, making an extended stay on the transplant unit less traumatic for young patients.
