Treatment  

Hematologic and Lymphoma Cancers

Almost all forms of hematologic and lymphatic cancers may require treatment with chemotherapy.

Acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL), acute myelogenous leukemia (AML), aplastic anemia and chronic myeloid leukemia may require a bone marrow transplant. AML may also be treated with a platelet transfusion.

Inpatient Care

Baylor T. Boone Pickens Cancer Hospital, North Texas' first dedicated cancer hospital, is connected by a sky bridge to Baylor Sammons Cancer Center at Dallas. Each room is ICU-equipped and HEPA-filtered and patients are treated by the same BMT physicians and staff.

Designed with modern, inviting hotel-like décor, the hospital features larger rooms that allow patient families and caregivers to have their own space for sitting, sleeping, watching television or working at a desk. Families and caregivers also have access to two areas in the hospital for showering, washing clothes, working or relaxing.

Urgent Care

For cancer patients in need of urgent, but not emergency care, after regular office hours the Oncology Evaluation and Treatment Center (OETC) is there to help. The center was created to work with BMT physicians to provide after hours care during weekday evening hours (24/7 on weekends) while also reducing exposure to contagious diseases from others. Staff members are trained and knowledgeable about the specific issues, symptoms and side effects related to cancer and its treatments.
