Abstract

It is anticipated that by the year 2020, the United States will double the number of hematopoietic cell therapy transplants completed in this country. As a freestanding cancer hospital with one of the largest hematopoietic cell therapy transplant programs in the country, City of Hope embarked on an innovative strategy to address current capacity issues and prospectively plan for future expansion of transplant volumes. This article describes the planning process that was undertaken using various content-specific focused teams to address all components of designing and opening an outpatient day hospital suitable for management of patients undergoing transplant in an ambulatory setting. The deliverables of the 11 teams that drove this planning process are addressed.
