The Division of Pediatric Hematology, Oncology and Bone Marrow Transplantation (BMT) at Children’s Mercy provides comprehensive pediatric cancer care to nearly 2,000 children each year with childhood cancers, sickle cell disease, hemophilia and other blood disorders. Our commitment to clinical research and innovation has helped us earn recognition as one of the top cancer programs in the nation by U.S. News and World Report.
Our unique case management system pairs each of our more than 20 board-certified physicians with an advanced practice nurse or physician assistant and a social worker to provide comprehensive pediatric care to our patients and families. Our staff provides 24/7 pediatric hematology and pediatric oncology coverage within the hospital.
The department is comprised of three specialized areas – Section of Pediatric Hematology, Section of Pediatric Oncology, and the Section of Pediatric Bone Marrow Transplantation. Programs such as Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA) and Survive and Thrive provide families with full support through every stage of care. Our team collaborates with the Center for Pediatric Genomic Medicine to better understand the genetic causes of cancer.
