The Blood & Marrow Transplant (BMT) Program at the Medical University of South Carolina won Team of the Year.

Presented at Press Ganey’s 2018 National Client Conference in Orlando, Florida, the national award recognizes a team that demonstrates outstanding coordination and teamwork in pursuit of delivering safe, high-quality and compassionate care.

“Our BMT program is 30 years old, and this award just confirms my belief that it takes a generation for an organization to cultivate a culture of caring that produces this level of excellence,” says Robert K. Stuart, M.D., a hematologist-oncologist at Hollings Cancer Center and the BMT director. “Our success is based on people, not bricks and mortar.”

Michelle P. Hudspeth, M.D., director of the pediatric blood and marrow transplant program, says teamwork is at the core of what they do every day. “We have a true focus on the patient and our mission. This fuels us every day to keep pushing harder for the children and adults who are depending on us for their only chance of survival.”
