Transplant and Clinical Management Expertise through collaboration with the Asian American Medical Group

In the fall of 2012, UPMC formalized its collaboration with the Asian American Medical Group (AAMG) to develop Asia’s first private Comprehensive Transplant Centre, which specializes in transplant immunology, transplants, infectious diseases and intensive care of immune-suppressed patients in Asia and around the world. The strategic collaboration with UPMC has enhanced AAMG’s clinical capabilities through shared protocols, rigorous quality standards and technology. AAMG is based within Gleneagles Hospital, Singapore, which is part of the Parkway group of hospitals.

The Comprehensive Transplant Centre comprises the Asian American Blood & Marrow Transplant Centre and the Asian American Liver Center, both wholly-owned subsidiaries of AAMG. Since 1994, the Asian American Liver Centre, formerly known as the Asian Centre for Liver Diseases and Transplantation, has been one of Asia’s foremost liver centers dedicated to the treatment of all liver and gastrointestinal diseases in adults and children.

The Asian American Blood & Marrow Transplant Centre was established in 2013 as an extension to AAMG’s medical capabilities, and treats patients with leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma or other hematological malignancies (blood cancers) and serious blood disorders. From induction and consultation, chemotherapy to transplant and post-transplant care, patients can be assured of seamless and comprehensive care.

For international patients, AAMG provides services such as:

  • 24/7 international emergency air evacuation
  • Accompanying outbound specialist and/or nursing staff during land or air transportation
  • International and local ambulance services
  • Local logistical assistance, (such as local accommodation and transportation); passport, visa and repatriation documentation
  • Interpretation service (selected languages)

As part of the collaboration with UPMC, AAMG is committed to being part of the UPMC Global Care program, and will work with UPMC to ensure all clinical and non-clinical needs are met.
