Pediatric Hematology/Oncology

The Division of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology at UI Health provides comprehensive diagnostic and treatment services to children and adolescents with cancer, leukemia, sickle cell disease, hemophilia, and other blood disorders.

We are a part of the Children's Oncology Group (COG), the leading pediatric cancer research group in the world. UI Health serves as the lead site for a tri-institutional COG entity that includes the John H. Stroger Hospital of Cook County and Rush University Medical Center. Through the COG, we provide access to international pediatric cancer clinical trials, with our patients receiving state of the art cancer care from our multidisciplinary team.

As part of the Comprehensive Sickle Cell Center at UI Health, our Hematology/Oncology team works to ensure children with sickle disease receive routine diagnostic testing and surveillance to help them transition to healthy, happy adults.

Other services in the Division of Hematology/Oncology include:

  • The Long-Term Survivors of Childhood Cancer Clinic: In our clinic, we provide comprehensive evaluation, diagnostics, and education to survivors of childhood cancer - infancy through adulthood - no matter where they received their cancer care.
  • The Cancer Survivorship Program: This program observes patients for late effects of treatments of pediatric cancers, starting two years after completion of therapy.
  • Passport for Care: This program provides a detailed cancer treatment summary and screening recommendations based on prior therapies, allowing for easy communication between oncologists, primary care doctors, and cancer survivors.
