Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) is a cancer treatment center that unites doctors from Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, UW Medicine, and Seattle Children’s. SCCA’s goal, every day, is to turn cancer patients into cancer survivors. Their purpose is to lead the world in the prevention and treatment of cancer. SCCA, Fred Hutch, UW Medicine, and Seattle Children's form the only National Cancer Institute–designated comprehensive cancer center in the Northwest. This group of organizations is one of the top-funded cancer centers in the country.
In 2014, more than 300 oncologists, surgeons, radiation oncologists, and other clinicians at SCCA treated over 6,000 patients for many types of cancers, including leukemia and lymphoma, and breast, prostate, lung, and colon cancer. SCCA patients have access to the latest cancer treatments including stem cell and bone marrow transplantation, gene therapy, high-dose chemotherapy, radiation therapy, immunotherapy, minimally invasive surgical techniques, and other specialized therapies.
Doctors at the Fred Hutch Bone Marrow Transplant Program at SCCA have performed more than 14,000 bone marrow transplants—more than any other institution in the world. The Fred Hutch Bone Marrow Transplant Program at SCCA is one of 15 centers whose patients achieved higher-than-expected survival rates for patients undergoing allogeneic transplants according to the most recent multi-year study by the Center for International Blood and Marrow Transplant Research (CIBMTR). The CIBMTR compared patients at 172 bone marrow transplant centers in the United States. Even people who have not found a matched donor may receive treatment here using a cord blood transplant or a haploidentical transplant.
