Treatment Centers Authorized to Administer CAR T-Cell Therapy

Get Permission

The following medical facilities are certified to administer chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy to eligible patients (as of May 16, 2018). However, not all of the centers administer both tisagenlecleucel (Kymriah) and axicabtagene ciloleucel (Yescarta). To identify the centers administering each product, a “T” or “A” has been placed after the center’s name. And, because new treatment centers may have been certified since publication, this may not be a complete listing of all treatment centers now authorized to perform CAR T-cell procedures.

Updated information for treatment centers certified to administer tisagenlecleucel is located at For updated information on treatment centers certified to administer axicabtagene ciloleucel, visit
