Dedicated clinic space and infusion rooms make up the Outpatient Center, which services more than 12,000 visits annually. We offer comprehensive Specialty Clinics in Sickle Cell, Stem Cell Transplant, Neuro Oncology, Immunology and a Comprehensive Survivor Clinic. Approximately 75 percent of children who are diagnosed with cancer today are expected to become survivors of their illness. It is now estimated that 1 in 900 young adults are survivors of childhood cancer. The Childhood Cancer Survivor Program is designed to help meet the unique needs of this growing population.
