As the region's largest provider of pediatric hematology/oncology services, our Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders offers a powerful blend of clinical expertise and comprehensive services for cancer (oncology) and blood disorders (hematology).
Programs of Care for Blood Disorders
Physicians and nurses in the hematology section evaluate more than 600 new patients each year with non-malignant blood disorders. These include common conditions such as iron-deficiency anemia, benign neutropenia and immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) but also numerous cases of more rare blood diseases that require the experience and expertise for diagnosis and management that can only be found at specialized institutions like ours.
