Haematology and Haemotherapy department
The Haematology and Haemotherapy Department at the Clínica Universidad de Navarra is made of specialists who are widely experienced both clinically and in research.
We are experts in hematopoietic progenitors transplants, which aim to therapeutically substitute bone marrow (hematopoietic tissue).
We also work alongside the Cell Therapy Area. We are the first centre in the world that has started clinical trials for myeloma treatment which includes both allogeneic transplants and anti-idiotypic vaccinations for the donor and recipient.
The follow-up for outpatients is carried out in external consultations and the Day Hospital, where we have highly qualified professionals.
As for haematology services, laboratories focussed on morphological diagnosis and general haematology, coagulation laboratories and a blood bank are located in the same centre.
We have a hospitalisation area with individual rooms for treating patients with diverse haematological diseases, fundamentally, haematological tumours, like leukaemia, lymphomas and myelomas.

Our Transplant Unit also has three positive pressure rooms where bone marrow (from the patient themselves) and allogeneic transplants (from a donor) are carried out.
The Haematology and Haemotherapy Department has different interconnected laboratories to offer a quick cytological and molecular diagnosis of leukaemia, lymphomas and lymphoproliferative syndromes

The blood products used in patient care is provided by the Navarran Blood and Tissues Bank.
The Blood Bank at the Clínica Universidad de Navarra has the latest facilities for storing the blood products which are necessary for treating patients. It is accredited by the Spanish Society of Haematology and Hemotherapy (SEHH) and Spanish Blood Transfusion Society (SETS) transfusion accreditation committees. This guarantees the quality of haemotherapy administered at the Clínica Universidad de Navarra.
The Day Hospital is a specialised unit with highly qualified professionals.
One of the main objectives of the Day Hospital is to provide quick and comprehensive patient care. Opening hours are 8:30-21:30.
Patients come to this Unit from the Medical Oncology, Radiotherapeutic Oncology, Haematology and Cell Therapy Departments, amongst others.
The unit has 24 individual rooms, with an electric recliner chair which can be adjusted into different positions, an individual bathroom, oxygen and vacuum outlets, a television and Wi-Fi connection.
To improve patient safety in the administration of drugs and transfusions, the Clínica has a special barcode system.

I chose the Clínica because they had very good references from my colleagues at the bank who had also been treated there for cancer problems".
