Pediatric Oncology and Hematology

Why Choose Us »

Hope for a Better Tomorrow: That's Our Promise

Finding out your child has cancer or a blood disorder can be overwhelming. You need an experienced, expert team that can deliver top-notch care and be there for you every step of the way. At the Nemours Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders (“NCCBD,” for short), we offer family- and patient-centered pediatric oncology and hematology care that includes expansive clinical and support services alongside internationally recognized research programs.

NCCBD isn’t actually a single “place,” but an established, multisite pediatric oncology and hematology program made up of four core locations (each of which are members of the Children’s Oncology Group):

These core facilities, together with our many satellite locations, pool our resources and expertise to offer families care that crosses geographic lines — focusing on improving outcomes, reducing side effects, and providing state-of-the-art therapies.


Why Choose Us

 
One of Only Two Pediatric NCORPs in the Country

As a National Cancer Institute Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP) we’re a fully integrated pediatric cancer network with recognized excellence in clinical research, clinical care and quality improvement.

 
Cross-Campus Collaboration, Expanded Expertise

When you come to NCCBD, it’s like getting a second, third and fourth opinion based on our established care teams’ collaborative insights and depth of experience.

 
Advanced Research & Care Go Hand-in-Hand

We’re as committed to researching new treatments and cures as we are to providing the very highest level of care to families. Everything we do at the bedside impacts our research — and everything we learn in the lab impacts our care.

 
Ongoing Commitment to Clinical Trial Participation

Our well-resourced, organizationwide efforts in clinical trials have led to national accolades and leadership. And each of our core locations is highly regarded for outstanding clinical trial participation, access and management.

 
Excellent Outcomes

When compared with the three top-rated U.S. children’s hospitals for pediatric oncology and hematology, we’re on par with or exceed national benchmarks for infection prevention, five-year cancer survival rates and bone marrow transplant survival rates.

 
Top Children’s Hospitals

The Leapfrog Group named two of our core locations a “Top Children’s Hospital” (Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children for 2012, Nemours Children’s Hospital for 2014). The duPont Hospital for Children is also ranked among the best for pediatric oncology by U.S. News & World Report.

 
Best Doctors in America®

Many of our physicians are selected as premier physicians in the country, year after year.

 
Center of Excellence in Sickle Cell Disease Research

The National Institutes of Health designated our sickle cell research program a Center of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE).

 
Long-Standing FACT Designation

Our applicable programs are recognized by the Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapy (FACT) for meeting or exceeding the most rigorous standards in every aspect of blood and bone marrow transplant therapy.

 
Pioneer in Family-Centered Care

For years, we’ve been at the forefront of “family-centered care,” a philosophy that emphasizes collaboration with patients and their families.

 
Comprehensive, Full-Service Program

Our ability to offer pediatric oncology and hematology expertise, access to 30-plus other medical and surgical specialties, and extensive collaboration with community health care organizations helps us give kids top-notch care from some of the best minds and facilities.

In everything we do, across all of our locations, we work together with two common goals: To find a cure and to reduce the side effects of childhood cancers and blood disorders. At Nemours, we work tirelessly to help kids not just live, but live longer and with a better quality of life — today and for many tomorrows.
