Compassionate Care, Innovative Medicine



​​Our comprehensive approach to patient care involves a team of specialists to address all of the patient needs before, during and after treatment. Each of these specialists brings a defined set of expertise to the patient care team. Working together, our team addresses the whole patient including medical, dietary, financial, psycho-social and overall quality of life needs. At the CU Blood Cancer and BMT Program, each of our specialists work exclusively with Blood Cancer patients. This means that all of our team members are highly experienced and capable of developing a plan of treatments that will lead to the best possible outcomes.  In addition to the people below who you may meet along your journey, we also have multiple specialists included in our diagnostic team who meet with all of the care providers on a weekly basis.
