Blood and Marrow Transplant Program Team

Our Blood and Marrow Transplant Program combines the resources of a world-class medical center with a personalized, integrated approach to your care. We aim to give you the best possible care in the most convenient location for you.

Your integrated care is coordinated through our centrally located hub at DHMC in Lebanon, NH as well as our four regional locations (Manchester, Nashua, and Keene, NH, and St. Johnsbury, VT) and affiliated hospitals throughout New Hampshire and Vermont.

What does “integrated” care look like?

Integrated care comes from the skills of providers throughout the medical center. It’s care by people who can address the unique needs of your condition and well-being. It’s care that starts the moment you meet us and continues through treatment and beyond. At every step, we treat you as a person, not a case number.

Integrated care also means there’s a lot happening on your behalf to give you the most up-to-date care possible. Your doctor may consult with colleagues who may not be directly involved in your care. For example, during meetings of the Tumor Board—a group of doctors, nurses, social workers and more—your doctor may ask for input on your diagnosis and treatment plan (patient identity is kept private). The process is rigorous and collaborative. The result? You benefit from the knowledge and experience of a wide group of experts.

We provide the highest standards of care in a patient-centered environment. The transplant program ranks in the top percentiles demonstrating the shortest length of stays. The results of our patient satisfaction surveys prove that we offer the most advanced care in a compassionate manner. These results speak highly of our continual efforts for program improvement.
