Medical/Surgical Unit (H9) specializing in Solid Organ Transplantation

H9 is a Medical/Surgical Unit which specializes in the care of Adult Renal and Liver Failure patients both pre and post operatively, Endocrine patients, and Urology patients. Through an interdisciplinary approach, quality care is delivered to our patients using a customized primary nursing modality to meet the physical, emotional, and educational needs of both the patient and their family.

Myeloma Institute for Research and Therapy (MIRT)

The Myeloma Institute for Research and Therapy (MIRT) is recognized both nationally and internationally for its leadership in the treatment of multiple myeloma and other cancers of the bone marrow responsive to stem cell transplantation. The MIRT program at UAMS is unique as it provides this highly specialized care in the Outpatient setting. Many of these patients, if seen elsewhere, would be admitted to an Inpatient unit, sometimes for periods of months. The program has provided over 10,000 stem cell transplants since its start. The MIRT program includes a 30 bed Inpatient unit (F7 Stem Cell Transplant), located in the Ward Tower of UAMS Hospital, and an Outpatient Infusion and Transplant Clinic located on the 4th floor of the Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute.  

Team members include physicians, registered nurses, advanced practice nurses, clinical pharmacists, transplant coordinators, insurance liaison nurses, dietitians, social workers, chaplains, physical and occupational therapists, and psychologists. This team provides continuity of care for all patients receiving stem cell transplants, both autologous and allogeneic.

Nurses are an integral part of the multidisciplinary team providing care to these patients. Our nurses see these patients daily, sometimes for many weeks, to give chemotherapy, supportive care treatments and stem cell transplants.  Without nurses providing the hands-on care, many of these patients would require hospitalization for their treatment.
