State-of-the-Art Blood & Marrow Transplant Floor
The Blood and Marrow Transplant and Leukemia floors have units that are designed for patients with lengthy stays and compromised immune systems.
The 44-bed, 25,000 sq. ft. floor features several elements specifically for an immune-compromised patient population, including a centralized air-handling system that filters all of the air on the floor every minute, removing 99.98 percent of potential pollutants. Dedicated restrooms, showers and kitchenettes for family members also help protect patients' health, while amenities like wireless Internet, flat screen TVs with built-in DVD players, and large picture windows in every room help ease the burden of enduring the 3 to 6 week average stay for patients and their families.
Other features of the floor include:
- All rooms are private.
- Small sofas or reclining chairs for family/visitors.
- Exercise room and nutrition room.
- Fully wired for telemetry to monitor patients.
- A washer and dryer for family use

From Our Chairman
“With some of the highest BMT survival rates in the world and one of the largest BMT programs in the region, we're seeing an increase in patients with leukemia and other hematologic malignancies requiring blood and marrow transplant and highly-specialized acute care coming to Cleveland Clinic for their care. We're proud to be adding such valuable state-of-the-art technology and patient-centered amenities that will provide patients with the best possible surroundings to aid in their treatment and recovery here.”
- Dr. Brian Bolwell, Chairman of Taussig Cancer Institute and Vice Chief of Staff, Cleveland Clinic.
