Pediatric Oncology

  • The Curtis and Elizabeth Anderson Cancer Institute and The Children’s Hospital at Memorial University Medical Center work together to offer the region’s only pediatric and adolescent hematology/oncology program.

    Our children's cancer program is centered around a multidisciplinary treatment approach. That means world-class physicians, certified pediatric oncology nurses, case managers, trained child life specialists, and others all work together to determine the best treatment for the child and his or her family. In addition to our extensive inpatient services, our outpatient facility offers blood and blood product transfusions, chemotherapy, and limited moderate sedation for procedures such as bone marrow aspiration/biopsy and lumbar punctures.

    Pediatric Oncology

    The Children's Hospital is affiliated with the Children's Oncology Group (COG). Research from COG members has contributed to major treatment advances and increasing cure rates for childhood cancer. As a member of COG, we are able to give children access to the highest standards of care, no matter where they live.

    Pediatric and adolescent hematology/oncology patients are seen by physician referral only. Physicians wishing to make a referral should all 912-350-8180. If you are referred to us, please bring the following information with you on your first visit:
