Answer

If a qualified hematologist and laboratory personnel with expertise are available, patients may be cared for in a setting close to home. Laboratory testing provided by community hospitals has been improved by the existence of commercial referral laboratories.

Federal and state funding for programs may be available through a medical center. Costs of care are much higher at tertiary medical centers.
