Blood and Marrow Transplant

Blood and Marrow Transplants, Close to Home

The Blood and Marrow Transplant (BMT) and Hematologic Malignancies program at St. Luke’s Mountain States Tumor Institute (MSTI) is the first and only one of its kind in Idaho. Our patients receive the region’s most advanced therapies, with the benefit of care close to home.

Studies show that patient outcomes in community transplant programs, such as St. Luke’s MSTI's, are equal to those at academic medical centers. Moreover, our patients tell us that their quality of life is better because they’re able to stay close to home and family. We are committed to working with patients and physicians throughout every stage of the transplant process, and to returning patients home as soon as possible.

Since 1993, St. Luke's MSTI has been performing autologous transplants (using the patient’s own stem cells) and syngeneic transplants (using cells from an identical twin). Like other recognized centers around the country, our team uses mobilized peripheral blood stem cells in the transplant process.

BMT Program Details

We offer you:

  • A highly trained multidisciplinary team of care providers, including specially trained physicians, nurses, social workers, dietitians, and others
  • An on-site, full-service BMT lab that performs the collection, cryopreservation, and storage of all stem cell products
  • The advantages of participation in national clinical trials and cooperation with regional academic and research centers
  • The benefits of a facility accredited by the Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapy (FACT), a national non-profit organization that promotes high-quality patient care and quality laboratory performance.
