Patient Care Sites

Find a doctor

Use the Fred Hutch and the University of Washington listings to find a doctor for a specific disease. Our clinical faculty are included in these directories.


Advanced Therapies

Multi-disciplinary care

We provide advanced, multi-disciplinary care not only to treat disease but also to improve overall heath throughout the treatment and recovery process.

Personalized medicine

Genomically-driven personalized medicine is emphasized for the treatment of cancer and blood diseases.

Stem cell transplantation

Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, including bone marrow transplantation, was pioneered by our first division head, Nobel Laureate E. Donnall Thomas, M.D.

Integrative medicine

In Integrative medicine, evidence-based mind-body practices, acupuncture, natural products, or lifestyle modifications from different traditions are used alongside conventional treatments.


Immunotherapy takes advantage of the body’s own immune system to find and destroy tumors. We provide cellular immunotherapy (including CAR T-cells), antibody therapy and checkpoint inhibitor therapy.

Gene therapy

Gene therapy uses molecular “scissors” to repair or disable problem-causing genes.


UW Medicine Patient Care Diversity Statement

At UW Medicine, we believe that healthcare is a fundamental human right and everyone should have the same access and opportunities for the best possible outcomes. This belief is very clearly tied to our mission to improve the health of the public. However, it’s important to acknowledge that institutional racism has created inequities in society — even within our own healthcare system — that result in health disparities. We are committed to transforming the way care is provided to eliminate these inequities.
