You are at the center of everything we do at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA). Here, we surround you with a team of specialists who work together closely to provide expertly targeted, complete care and compassionate support throughout your treatment and beyond.
We guide you every step of the way, combining our deep clinical expertise in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) with a commitment to meet your unique needs.
Why choose SCCA for AML treatment?
Leukemia survival rates
Leukemia patients who begin treatment at SCCA have better survival rates on average than those who started treatment elsewhere.
Comprehensive AML treatment
Our doctors are experts in the highly complex treatment AML requires. Based on the specific features of your disease, your team may recommend chemotherapy, bone marrow transplant or medicines used for the subtype acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL) specifically, all available at SCCA.
AML clinical studies
To give you access to the most innovative therapies, SCCA unites the leading researchers and cancer specialists of Fred Hutch and UW Medicine so you can take part in AML clinical studies not available everywhere.
Pioneering new approaches
Researchers here were the first to treat APL without chemotherapy, an approach now used worldwide. We are advancing AML chemotherapy and immunotherapy and use of diagnostic tools like UW-OncoPlex to guide treatment decisions.
Bone marrow transplant transplant for AML
The Fred Hutch Bone Marrow Transplant Program at SCCA consistently achieves higher-than-expected transplant survival rates. We’ve performed more bone marrow transplants than any other institution in the world.
A national leader in cancer care
SCCA is the leading cancer treatment center in the region and among the top nationally, according to U.S. News & World Report.
