Caring for more than 5,000 children each year, our doctors have more experience treating children and young adults with cancer and blood disorders than any other center in New England and most centers in the United States.
Our hematologists and oncologists are among the world leaders in their respective specialties; many of our physicians have pioneered treatments for pediatric cancer and blood disorders that have been adopted by the medical communities around the globe.
We subscribe to the notion that a hospital is only as good as its nurses. That’s why each of our nurses average 10 years of experience caring for young children with cancer and blood disorders.
