Patients suffering from malignant blood diseases are treated on ward 7B. In most cases, patients are suffering from acute and chronic leukaemia, myeloma, lymphoma or aplastic anaemia. The ward has 13 beds. Patients are admitted to the ward for stem cell transplantation therapy based on a planned appointment and as emergencies due to complications, such as acute graft-versus-host reaction or infection after a transplant.
 
Patients remain in protective isolation for almost the entire duration of the treatment. Ranging from a few days to several months, the average length of treatment is 19 days. In stem cell transplantation, the average length of treatment is four weeks.
 
In addition, the hematology ward handles apheresis operations (peripheral collection of blood stem cells and photopheresis).
