GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) – The need for a blood or bone marrow transplant no longer means patients need to leave West Michigan.
Spectrum Health in Grand Rapids now has local care facilities for blood and bone marrow transplants. This is an important cause for patients in Grand Rapids to create an environment that is close to home and loved ones.
Spectrum Health’s Adult Blood and Marrow Transplant Program is not only for patients, but also provides a way to give people the opportunity to volunteer and give back. Dr. Stephanie Williams of Spectrum Health explains how the program has expanded tremendously over the past year.
The Adult Blood and Marrow Transplant Program is relocating to provide better service to those in need. The new location includes:
- Nine consultation/exam rooms
- Eight apheresis rooms, partnering with Michigan Blood to collect stem cells
- Procedure room for bone marrow biopsies
- Larger infusion area including:
- – 18 chair areas with TVs
- – Six private infusion rooms
