The Barnes-Jewish Hospital (BJH) Pheresis Center assists the Center for Gene and Cellular Immunotherapy with inpatient and outpatient services that include cellular collections, therapeutic apheresis, photopheresis, and other transfusion medicine therapies.
The patient care team consists of registered nurses who have extensive training in all apheresis therapies and who are focused on consistently providing premier patient care. As a result, the Center has repeatedly received the National 5-Star Award in Excellence for patient experience and satisfaction from Professional Research Consultants, a national, independent research firm.
A dedicated quality assurance coordinator monitors the program and provides quarterly reports, self-assessments, event reporting and monitoring. A laboratory research coordinator also supports the Center with all research requests and activities.
The BJH Pheresis Center is affiliated with Washington University School of Medicine and is accredited by The Joint Commission, the Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapy (FACT), AABB (formerly known as the American Association of Blood Banks), and the College of American Pathologists (CAP). The Center also is registered with the federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and adheres to all applicable regulations and established cellular therapy standards.
