Where You Will Be Seen

When you come to the Fred Hutchinson Transplant Program at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) for a bone marrow transplant, most of your outpatient appointments and treatment will take place at the SCCA clinic on south Lake Union. Your hospital stay will be at University of Washington Medical Center (UWMC). You may have some outpatient tests and procedures there as well.

SCCA Transplant Clinic

The Transplant Clinic is on the sixth floor of the SCCA clinic. This will be your family’s “home base” while you are being evaluated for a transplant and during the transplant process itself. You will be assigned to a team that includes a registered nurse who will be with you consistently throughout the transplant process. You will have frequent outpatient appointments with your team in the Transplant Clinic.

The staff at the clinic will help you manage your treatment plan, and your family will have a mailbox behind the reception desk on the sixth floor, where you can check for appointment schedules and other messages. Many of the other services you will need—such as the infusion room, blood draw area, apheresis unit, and pharmacy—are conveniently located in the same building.

Parking is available in the garage under the SCCA building. View a map and directions.

University of Washington Medical Center

During your treatment for a standard bone marrow transplant, you can expect to be hospitalized at UWMC at times. The oncology unit at UWMC provides hematology, oncology, and transplant care in a warm and friendly environment.

Getting Around

A convenient, free shuttle runs on a regular schedule between SCCA, UWMC, and Seattle Children’s, and from SCCA to Pete Gross House and SCCA House
