Currently, our outpatient clinic is located at Holtz Children’s Hospital Ambulatory Care Center. In our outpatient clinic, patients are able to see their doctor, have tests performed and receive treatments (including transfusions and chemotherapy). Visits to the clinic may be brief, involving a quick check-up and laboratory work, or may be more extensive if chemotherapy or a blood transfusion is given. A comfortable waiting area provides children with play areas complete with toys and puzzles as well as video, board and computer games.

For children requiring around the clock care, our program includes an 18 bed in-patient unit as well as a bone marrow transplant unit at Holtz Children’s Hospital. In addition to our pediatric hematologists/oncologists, specialized nursing staff, and colleagues from other pediatric specialties, children and families in the hospital benefit from a very strong child life program, filled with activities to make the hospital stay more enjoyable. Support services from social work, psychology, physical therapy, education and nutrition are available as well.
