Spinraza Administration Sites

Cure SMA does not endorse any particular site, treatment, or therapy. This information should be used in consultation with a qualified healthcare professional, who will help you make the decisions that are best for you and your family.

Before contacting a site which is not located in your state, we strongly encourage you to discuss options with both your personal healthcare professional and with your insurer. Out-of-state treatment can present significant challenges in both travel and insurance reimbursement.

Our goal at Cure SMA is to build this list to a few hundred active centers across the US, including multiple locations in each state, to meet the expected needs of our whole community. We have to work together to greatly increase the number of sites involved in both delivering this first-ever new SMA therapy and providing SMA care. This process will take time, and there should be the expectation of delays in gaining access to Spinraza while this process takes place.

This list is continually updated as we confirm more sites that are administering or preparing to adminster Spinraza. If your local site is not listed here, please email us, or ask the site coordinator to email us, at patientcare@curesma.org. Site managers must give their permission to have the site listed here.

Information Regarding Spinraza Administration

Administering Spinraza is a complex medical procedure that involves families, patients, hospitals, insurers, and the medical professionals who will administer the drug and provide both short- and long-term monitoring after patients receive the drug. Because of this, sites may take weeks or months to become fully operational. Please be patient as sites are moving as quickly as possible provide to Spinraza, while keeping the safety and health of all patients at the forefront of their considerations.
