The Division of Pediatric Hematology, Oncology and Bone Marrow Transplantation (BMT) at Children’s Mercy provides comprehensive care to nearly 2,000 children each year with childhood cancers, sickle cell disease, hemophilia and other blood disorders.
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 care to our patients and families. Our staff provides 24/7 hematology and oncology coverage within the hospital.
The department is comprised of three specialized areas – Section of Hematology, Section of Oncology, and the Section of 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.
