Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Unit
The Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Unit provides total care for patients with any oncologic or hematologic diagnosis. The 16-bed inpatient unit is located on the sixth floor of OSF Children’s Hospital of Illinois. Staff works closely with the Jim and Trudy Maloof St. Jude Affiliate Clinic at OSF Healthcare Children’s Hospital of Illinois to ensure patients and families receive the very best care both when staying inpatient or outpatient.
Interdisciplinary rounds take place each day on every patient. During this time, the patient and their family are updated on the plan of care for the day and have the opportunity to speak with the attending physician to answer any questions.
All staff registered nurses are certified pediatric chemotherapy providers through the Association of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Nurses.
