Blood Cancers

Hematologic cancers (affecting the blood, bone marrow and lymph nodes) are very complex and require special expertise to successfully treat. Our cancer experts specialize in developing personalized treatments for people throughout the Puget Sound who have leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma.

Leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma treatment options

Because we’re part of CHI, one of the largest health care providers in the country, you’ll have access to the latest research and innovations through the CHI Institute for Research and Innovation as well as national clinical trials as part of our participation in the National Cancer Institute Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP).

Our medical oncologists are among the best in the region and we also partner with the Northwest’s leading medical oncology and hematology experts at Northwest Medical Specialties and Rainier Hematology & Oncology, both nationally recognized for genomic research and innovation and are on the forefront of diagnosing and treating cancer patients.

Our cancer specialists take a multidisciplinary team approach to treating blood cancers. Experts from several specialties work together to design a personalized treatment plan specifically for your individual case, which may include one or more of the following:

  • Chemotherapy
  • Immunotherapy to activate the body’s own immune system to fight the cancer
  • Radiation therapy
  • Stem cell transplants to replace those in bone marrow that are destroyed by chemotherapy
  • Targeted therapies, such as antibodies that target specific molecules within cancer cells
