Cancer Center: Pediatric Oncology

Hope Thrives Here

The Cancer Center at Nicklaus Children's Hospital, formerly Miami Children's Hospital, is the region’s leading children's cancer center. It provides care for more pediatric cancer patients than any other facility in South Florida.

Multidisciplinary Specialty Programs

Conditions we Treat

Services of the Cancer Center include comprehensive diagnostic services and treatment for children with cancer, leukemia and blood disorders. Children with these conditions have special physical, emotional and psychological needs. They require the highest level of medical expertise and highly specialized medical treatment combined with very personalized support from their physicians and care staff. In short, they need Nicklaus Children's Hospital, formerly Miami Children's Hospital.

The Cancer Center features a Blood and Marrow Transplantion Program, established in 1991. The program is accredited by the Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapies (FACT) for all aspects of bone marrow transplantation.

Every member of the children's cancer center care team at Nicklaus Children's is trained and experienced in supporting children during treatment for serious illnesses. Their skill and compassion can make all the difference for a child and family during a difficult time…renewing health and restoring hope.
