Phoenix Cord Blood Programs

The big news in the Phoenix area is the cooperation between the Phoenix Children’s Hospital Pediatric Blood and Marrow Transplant Program and the Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale.

With blood marrow transplant (BMT) services previously unavailable in the Valley, families already struggling with the burden of having a child with cancer had to face the additional stress and inconvenience of having a child hospitalized in a distant facility for several months.

Now, the Phoenix Children’s Hospital Pediatric Blood and Marrow Transplant Program provided in cooperation with Mayo Clinic will allow families to remain close to home. Private cord blood storage companies also have donatino centers in Phoenix.

Phoenix Children’s Hospital
The ChildrenÕs Cancer Center at Phoenix ChildrenÕs Hospital (PCH) cares for the majority of pediatric cancer patients in Arizona, and is known statewide as the leader in pediatric cancer treatment. PCHÕs new in-patient hospital and outpatient clinics are designed and equipped exclusively for the care of children. Given the often long-duration of cancer treatment, including the BMT episode of care, PCHÕs extensive family support programs, including individual counseling, family support groups, school re-entry programs, camps, and scholarships, are vital underpinnings to the complete care of these patients.

Mayo Clinic
Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale has physician and administrative leaders who are experienced in directing and operating BMT programs, including the highly-specialized billing and managed care contracting aspects of BMT services.
