exceptional care for children with cancer and blood disorders

Dayton Children’s is a special place for families who are dealing with a child’s diagnosis of cancer or a blood disorder. Our experienced team provides patients with exceptional medical care, and offers extensive support to their parents, grandparents and siblings. These families become part of our family as their children receive care over the course of several months or years.

Our care team is led by board-certified pediatric hematologists/oncologists, and includes nurses, nurse practitioners, specialized nurse navigators, social worker, psychologist, dietitian and child life specialist. Other experts at Dayton Children’s — such as surgeons and genetics counselors— work with the team as needed to ensure that each child’s unique needs are met.
