Northside’s Blood & Marrow Transplant Program Ranked Best in Nation

June 7, 2012

            The Cobb Chamber is nothing without its members, so we never miss an opportunity to celebrate their good news. Northside Hospital’s Blood and Marrow Transplant Program was recently listed for having the best survival rates for matched related and unrelated transplants of any program in the country for the third year in a row. Over 170 transplants alone were performed in 2011 at Northside, which placed the program as one of the top Blood and Marrow Transplant programs in the nation. Northside’s program also has the highest one-year survival rate in the country with 78 percent. Northside is proud to offer its patients the best services and resources in the metro Atlanta area, as well as in the nation.

            “Since the establishment of our comprehensive blood and marrow transplant program in 1997, we have strived to become the premier program in the Southeast and among the best programs within the United States in terms of outstanding quality clinical care,” said H. Kent Holland, M.D., medical director, BMT Program at Northside Hospital. “The results of our efforts are clearly shown in these latest results from the National Marrow Donor Program.”

            To further their accomplishments, this past year the program was asked by the National Cancer Institute to join the prestigious group of Core Clinical Centers for the Blood and Marrow Transplant Clinical Trials Network which consists of only 20 programs. This elite membership allows Northside to offer its patients the latest cancer research and treatments.

            Northside has recently renovated the inpatient and outpatient Blood and Marrow Transplant units, further elevating the patient experience. More than 200 professionals work in the program and are dedicated to making sure that every patient receives the best care possible.

            Congratulations Northside Hospital on your outstanding accomplishments and honors!
