cancer-overview

Since 1992, the Children’s Blood & Cancer Center is the only place in Central Texas that specializes in battling all types of cancers and blood disorders in children and adolescents, from leukemia to brain tumors, from sickle cell to hemophilia. We are dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for each child and adolescent we serve through individualized treatment, compassionate care, and research. The Children’s Blood & Cancer Center offers comprehensive services – from outpatient and inpatient chemotherapy, surgery and medical care to child life activities and psychosocial support. Our staff helps patients and families cope with the stress and anxiety that often accompanies a cancer or blood disorder diagnosis by providing long term cancer survivorship care, educational wellness fairs, family and teen support groups, physical activity training programs, family nutrition classes, and art therapy.

Since 1996, Dell Children's Medical Center (formerly Children's Hospital of Austin) has been accredited by the American College of Surgeons' Commission on Cancer. In March 2003, the SETON Network (which includes Dell Children's Medical Center) became the first cancer program in Texas and the seventh in the nation to receive approval as a Network Cancer Program by the Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons. Our cancer program was most recently re-accredited in April 2008.
