Amongst the largest transplant programs in the country, CBCI is honored to be the Rocky Mountain's leaders in this field, working closely with our physician colleagues from New Mexico to Montana to provide patients with nationally recognized care and access to the most innovative clinical trials.

CBCI is a FACT-accredited program for both autologous and allogeneic transplants, performing related and FACT Logounrelated donor transplants including cord blood transplants.

CBCI conducts cutting edge clinical research, testing innovative treatments for patients with blood cancers and bone marrow diseases. Referral to a blood cancer specialist early after diagnosis allows for full evaluation of treatment options and the development of a treatment plan including access to approximately 50 clinical trials. The physicians and staff can discuss research studies to ensure that patients receive the most progressive therapies available.
