The first group of Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center inpatients were moved April 11 to the new Seattle Cancer Care Alliance unit located at UW Medical Center. The patients were previously cared for at Swedish Medical Center. The Hutch's adult marrow transplantation program will continue at UWMC.

The Seattle Cancer Care Alliance unites the oncology patient services and research programs of the Hutchinson Center, the UW, and Children's Hospital.
