Welcome to Brookdale University Hospital & Medical Center

The Division of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology diagnoses and treats children and teenagers with blood disorders such as sickle cell disease and cancer and provides information and counseling to parents and patients.

Children and teens with chronic conditions receive long-term continuity of care from our team of doctors, nurses and social workers. The team also coordinates care with the child’s primary care physician and other specialists.

Our dedicated staff assist in parent and patient education and long-term care. We help parents with issues such as coping with a chronic or severe illness, obtaining medical insurance coverage and other financial support, transportation assistance, as well as help with personal family problems.

Physicians are available by beeper 24 hours a day to answer questions and/or give advice.
