Blood Cancer

Texas Transplant Institute at Methodist Hospital

Methodist Healthcare’s adult and pediatric medical oncologists and hematologists are the leaders in blood cancer care for the south central Texas region.  We provide a multidisciplinary approach to cancer care, developing a personalized treatment plan for each patient and providing a dedicated nurse navigator who coordinates and monitors care for complex blood cancer patients.  

The Adult and Pediatric Stem Cell Transplant Program at Methodist Hospital and Methodist Children’s Hospital in San Antonio has performed nearly 3,000 transplants since the program’s inception in 1993. It was the first in North America to be accredited by the Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapy (FACT) and is FACT-accredited for both autologous and allogeneic transplants, performing related and unrelated donor transplants including cord blood transplants. The program also provides patients with nationally recognized care and access to the most innovative clinical trials.

Methodist Hospital offers a Very Immunocompromised 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.
