Dr. Michael Henderson came to UMMC in 2015 on a mission to put processes and people in place to keep patients safe from harm, and to drive real-time data collection to tell the performance story. Seven years later, the Medical Center’s improved performance is evident and something to take pride in – but the work isn’t done.
When bone marrow transplant was being pioneered in this country, it didn’t take long for UMMC to build its own program, with the early team being trained by the best of the best. Thirty years and more than 1,700 transplants later, the Medical Center is extending the lives – and quality of life – for patients whose blood cancers make bone marrow transplant their route to survival.
