The large, nationally known Cancer Center at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia is in a class of its own. Offering a broad array of pediatric oncology careers and opportunities for advancement, it includes a Blood and Marrow Transplant Program within a 50-bed inpatient oncology unit and an oncology clinic that provides outpatient care. We also provide intensive outpatient oncology care in two satellite locations.
Our Bone Marrow Transplant Program is unique in the Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware area for several reasons:
Our highly experienced transplant team consists of Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT) physicians, radiation oncologists, nurse practitioners, a search coordinator, a social worker, nutritionists and child life specialists — all of whom work together to provide comprehensive care for each patient.
We have a total of 11 beds for stem cell transplantation, all in HEPA-filtered rooms in a special HEPA-filtered unit that includes a playroom and exercise room.
