Among the Best Children’s Cancer Centers in the Nation
As the largest pediatric cancer center in Texas and one of the largest in the United States, we provide medical treatment for patients with childhood cancer and childhood blood disorders.
The nationally acclaimed children’s clinic, Texas Children’s Cancer and Hematology Centers, along with research and drug development programs, have helped Texas Children’s Hospital rank among the best children’s hospitals for cancer by U.S. News & World Report.
With a staff of renowned experts in the treatment and research of pediatric and adolescent cancer, we have developed a wide array of programs aimed at curing children with diagnoses ranging from the most common to the very rare.
Our world-renowned staff of 140 faculty and over 800 staff have pioneered many of the now standard protocols for treating and curing pediatric cancer and blood disorders. In addition, we provide a full range of pediatric subspecialty care available in-house 24 hours a day and treat all pediatric cancer and blood disorders, even the rarest disorders. Over 73,700 outpatient clinic visits are performed each year with patients traveling from 35 states and 26 countries, making us the largest pediatric cancer and hematology center in the United States.
We know that the diagnosis of cancer or a blood disorder is traumatic for both the child and the family. As a leader in family-centered care, Texas Children’s Cancer and Hematology Centers provide personalized, comprehensive services that address both the physical and emotional aspects of the disease.
Working as a Team to Cure Kids
Treatment is organized around diagnosis-specific treatment teams. By working together as a team, patients benefit from the combined talents and expertise of some of the best physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, social workers, pharmacists, and child life specialists. Patients are seen by the same doctors, nurses, and social workers on an ongoing basis to provide a sense of trust, safety, and comfort. Children and teens receive some of the best care in the world for their disease because they are monitored by an entire team, rather the a single doctor, allowing the patient the best chance to receive comprehensive cancer control.
