Why choose SCCA for leukemia treatment?
Leukemia survival rates
Leukemia patients who begin treatment at SCCA have better survival rates on average than those who started treatment elsewhere.
Comprehensive leukemia treatment
Our doctors are experts in the complex range of treatments leukemia may require. Based on the specific features of your disease, your team may recommend chemotherapy, targeted therapy, immunotherapy or bone marrow transplant, all available at SCCA.
Leukemia clinical trials
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 leukemia clinical studies not available everywhere.
