Texas Children's Cancer and Hematology Centers
As the largest pediatric cancer and hematology center in the United States, Texas Children’s Cancer and Hematology Centers in Houston, Texas, provides the highest quality medical care for patients with cancer and blood disorders—from infants to 21 years of age. The nationally acclaimed clinical program, along with research and drug development programs, have helped Texas Children’s Hospital rank consistently among the world’s best children’s hospitals in the area of cancer according to U.S. News and World Report.
With a world-renowned faculty of more than 200 and more than 1000 staff, Texas Children’s Cancer and Hematology Centers has pioneered many of the now standard protocols for treating and curing pediatric cancer and blood disorders and has developed a wide array of programs aimed at curing children with diagnoses ranging from the most common to the very rare. In addition, Texas Children’s Hospital offers a full range of pediatric subspecialty care that is available in-house 24 hours a day.
Nearly 4,300 new patients are seen at the Cancer Center, with children coming from 50 different states and 56 countries. More than 350 researchers in 47 laboratories are on the forefront of cutting-edge childhood cancer research, conducting more clinical trials than any other pediatric cancer center in the nation. The Cancer Center continues to lead the field in translating break-through research findings from the laboratory to the clinic and is committed to providing world-class training and education to the next generation of experts in pediatric cancer and blood disorders.
Knowing the diagnosis of cancer or a blood disorder is traumatic for both the child and the family, Texas Children’s Cancer and Hematology Centers has established itself as a leader in family-centered care and provides personalized, comprehensive services that address both the physical and emotional aspects of the disease. The ultimate goal is to reach a future that is free from the threat of childhood cancer and blood diseases for every child in the world.
