Making the choice to have a blood or bone marrow transplant is about hope-for you and for the people who depend on you. Across America, blood and marrow transplants have given new life to thousands of people whose diseases were once incurable.

The vast majority of transplant survivors lead full and meaningful lives. They have learned to overcome personal fears, gained a greater appreciation of life and discovered spiritual strength as a result of the transplant experience.

Our Team

Osborn Hematopoietic Malignancy and Transplantation Program at MBRCC is West Virginia's only source for blood and marrow transplants. Since October 1992, we have treated hundreds of patients from West Virginia and the surrounding regions. We remain in touch with a growing number of former patients and their families each year. Along with outstanding staff and technology, we offer patients the ability to receive the latest treatment close to home and family. Because of the lengthy hospital stays associated with many transplants, this can be a tremendous benefit to visitors, families and caregivers.

Our doctors, nurses and staff offer a personalized, caring and compassionate approach to every patient they treat. A carefully working team, they have dedicated their lives to the unique needs of patients like you.

New Therapies and Treatments

In addition to patient care responsibilities, many of our staff members work on the leading edge of technology-developing innovative new drugs and therapies to reduce side effects and improve success rates. We are members of the National Marrow Donor Program, the North American Marrow Transplant Group and the Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group. By working with other transplant groups and conducting clinical trials, we can provide you with the newest therapies available, right here at home.

The Blood and Marrow Transplant Unit

The Transplant Unit is located on 9 West in Ruby Memorial Hospital, at the heart of West Virginia University's Medical Center. It is a comfortable and highly protective environment, with special air filter systems to decrease exposure to germs. The rooms are private with self-contained bathrooms, televisions and VCRs.
