Pediatric Hematology/Oncology

The Division of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology diagnoses and provides treatment to children with a variety of blood diseases and different types of cancer.

As an active member of the Children's Oncology Group (COG), we provide the most modern, up-to-date care available to children with any type of cancer. With support from our surgery, pathology, radiology, and radiation therapy colleagues we are able to offer a full complement of services to those children who require them.

We have an excellent social work division that will assist families in dealing with the challenges that result from having a child with one of these disorders.

A play therapy program was recently introduced that assists our children in many ways, from giving them an opportunity to be kids to helping them stay successful in school despite their treatment schedules.

We also have an outstanding track record in providing broad-based support to military families within our region as well as to families moving to our area. Our location allows military members to support their families during comprehensive pediatric hematology/oncology treatment while serving their country.
