THE PRINCESS MARGARET OPENS NEW STEM CELL TRANSPLANT UNIT

27/09/2017

After months of preparation and construction, Unit 14C at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre is open – adding 12 new beds to care for allogeneic stem cell transplant patients.

There are now 26 beds devoted to the specialized needs of these patients. The newly-renovated space will help the cancer centre increase its capacity for allogeneic transplants to 208 per year.

This is the first phase of the Princess Margaret's allogeneic expansion plan to help improve access for patients requiring transplants.

"The team is thrilled to open the doors of this new space to patients," says Susan Clarke, Nurse Manager on 14C. "Not only can we perform more transplants, but the design elements and the new staffing model are allowing us to improve the quality and safety of care, as well as improving access for this lifesaving treatment."
