The Pediatrics division is dedicated to providing the highest caliber care to children, adolescents, and young adults diagnosed with cancer. We’re proud of our history of conducting the kinds of innovative research in our laboratories and at the Children’s Cancer Hospital that translated into standard-of-care therapies at healthcare institutions around the world.
Now, we are rebuilding our team of medical oncologists and laboratory scientists.
We’re opening additional clinical trials to address the most challenging diagnoses, such as osteosarcomas, brain cancers and malignant blood diseases. In May 2018, we launched our Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA) Program to help our patients thrive during treatment and for many years into survivorship. This service works with experts from the entire institution to address survivorship questions about onco-fertility preservation, predisposition for recurrence, social work resources, nutrition and energy balance, healthy behaviors, psychological support, and occupational/vocational issues, among others.
Pediatrics Administrative Office business hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday-Friday.
