The Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA), located in Seattle, Washington, is part of a dynamic collaboration among three organizations known nationally and internationally for their patient care and research: Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, University of Washington, and Seattle Children's. Over the past 25 years, these institutions have worked together to support their mission of adult and pediatric oncology patient care services, research and education.
The Service Line Manager, Blood and Marrow Transplantation, is responsible for overseeing program development across multiple sites of practice (SCCA, UWMC, SCH) and all disciplines in the disease groups within their service line. This position is responsible for leading the development of the service line strategic plan across all Performance Commitment dimensions (e.g., highest quality care, financial stewardship, research, growth, access, and people). As the value stream manager, this position leads collaborations with all disease group stake holders to ensure patients receive the most effective, efficient, safest, and highest value service across the continuum of care. The Service Line Manager develops and maintains knowledge of critical events that could impact scientific, regulatory, and other oncology practice changes in the industry.
The Seattle Cancer Care Alliance was incorporated in 1998 as a separate, jointly governed non-profit that included the cancer programs of three partners. Seattle Cancer Care Alliance is a cancer treatment center that unites doctors from Fred Hutchison Cancer Research Center, University of Washington Medical Center, and Seattle Children’s. The purpose of this organization is to provide state-of the-art patient and family centered care; support the conduct of cancer clinical research and education; enhance access to improved cancer interventions; and advance the standard of cancer care regionally and beyond. The Seattle Cancer Care Alliance is the only NCI-designated comprehensive cancer center in the Northwest, and according to the National Cancer Data Base, Seattle Cancer Care Alliance patients in general have better survival rates than patients treated at other cancer treatment centers.
