The body relies on blood to deliver fuel and oxygen to its billions of cells and to combat infections and other diseases. For these reasons, blood disorders can impact a host of bodily functions. The doctors at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) treat a wide range of blood disorders using leading-edge therapies with an eye to providing care to you as a whole person.

Expert Diagnosis & Treatment

Many blood disorders are rare, and treating them can be difficult. SCCA hematologists and oncologists have the expertise to diagnose and treat even the most complex or uncommon conditions. In addition to blood-related cancers, like leukemia, Hodgkin’s and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, and multiple myeloma, we see patients with myelodysplastic syndrome, myeloproliferative neoplasms, and many types of nonmalignant (noncancerous) blood disorders, including aplastic anemia, inherited bone marrow failure syndromes, deep vein thrombosis, and sickle cell disease.

Most Experienced Transplant Center

For people who have been diagnosed with certain blood diseases, a bone marrow transplant can offer the best hope. The Fred Hutch Blood and Bone Marrow Transplant Program at SCCA is a leading provider of bone marrow transplants for both blood cancers and nonmalignant blood disorders. Our doctors have performed more than 14,000 bone marrow transplants—more than any institution in the world. Our success rates are also among the best, measured in terms of one-year survival rates of our patients.

Clinical Study Opportunities

SCCA was formed, in part, to bring promising new treatments to patients faster. For people with blood disorders, this means more treatment options through SCCA than you might find elsewhere, including the chance to participate in one of many ongoing clinical studies conducted at SCCA and its founding organizations, Fred Hutch and UW Medicine.
