About Pediatric Hematology/Oncology

The Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Program was created in 1997 to meet the growing need for a comprehensive pediatric health care facility in Southwest Florida.

Built on a commitment of compassionate care and support, Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida offers specialized medical care for children with cancer and blood disorders. We help families right here in our area maintain as much of their normal daily lives as possible while a child undergoes treatment.

The State of Florida Department of Children’s Medical Services has designated Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida’s Hematology/Oncology Program as one of just nine centers in the state for infants and children diagnosed with cancer and blood disorders.

Through the center’s membership in the Children’s Oncology Group, a cooperative research group supported by the National Cancer Institute, Golisano Children’s Hospital can ensure that patients have access to advanced therapies and the collective expertise of world-renowned specialists.
