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, along with the research and drug development programs, is considered by U.S. News & World Report to be among the best children’s hospitals for cancer.
Each year, our our doctors and nurses see more than 1,900 new patients, and there are more than 33,000 outpatient visits annually. The inpatient unit has 36 inpatient beds along with a 15-bed stem cell and bone marrow transplant unit–the largest in the Southwest.
Treatment at the Cancer Center 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.
“Universal” programs care for all children with cancer and blood disorders, such as the Psychosocial Support Program and the Long Term Survivor Program.
As specialists in the treatment of all pediatric cancer and pediatric blood disorders, and as experts in childhood cancer and childhood blood disorder research,we have developed treatment programs and centers to cure children with the most common and the most rare forms of all childhood cancer and hematology diseases.
