The Blood and Marrow Transplantation Program at Nicklaus Children's Hospital is South Florida’s first and most experienced care provider for children requiring blood or bone marrow transplantation.

Established in 1991, the program was originally accredited in 2003 by the Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapies (FACT) for all aspects of blood or marrow transplantation (cellular therapy). The program continues to meet the rigorous FACT standards, having achieved its most recent reaccreditation in 2017. FACT accreditation is given to organizations that exceed standards in patient care and laboratory practices.

We treat patients with malignant and nonmalignant disorders, and use both Autologous and Allogeneic donors. It includes peripheral blood, bone marrow and cord blood (single or double), from HLA-matched family members, haplo-identical family members and unrelated donors.
