Sarah Cannon Blood Cancer Center at
St. David's South Austin Medical Center

St. David’s South Austin Medical Center in South Austin is a FACT Accredited BMT program that performs autologous and allogenic transplants for blood cancers. St. David’s is in partnership with Texas Transplant Institute, the first FACT accredited program, Texas Oncology and Sarah Cannon Blood Cancer Network. The blood and marrow stem cell transplant program was established at Methodist Hospital in 1993 and expanded to St. David’s South Austin Medical Center in 2013 to establish a comprehensive adult transplant program in Austin. The two sites operate together as one program by sharing common quality management processes, policies, procedures, physicians, nurse competencies and personnel.

St. David’s South Austin Medical Center offers a Very Immunosuppressed Patient (VIP) Care Program, the only program in the region that focuses on promptly identifying and treating immunocompromised oncology patients arriving through the cancer clinic or the Emergency Room. The program provides special training to ER and clinic staff to identify and address the unique needs of chemotherapy patients.

The BMT program has a dedicated state-of-the-art BMT transplant unit, including HEPA filtration, an outpatient clinic, and photopheresis service.
