Map & Directions

Determination, Courage and our Caring Spirit distinguish St. Vincent Pediatric Cancer Care. Children and teens facing cancer need a special kind of “Caring Spirit.” They get that and so much more at the Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital (PMCH). At the Center for Childhood Cancers and Blood Diseases, every child has an all-star team of attending physicians. This team represents the expertise of many pediatric specialties, including oncology, hematology, neuro-oncology, surgery and neurosurgery, and orthopedic medicine. The Cancer Center is on the first floor of the PMCH and is conveniently accessible for outpatient treatments and imaging.

Our Pediatric Cancer Care program is an active member of the Children’s Oncology Group, an internationally recognized Children’s Cancer research network. We have an active pediatric cancer program which directly benefits our patients and families with direct access to advanced treatment options and protocols.

What makes us different? Three things.

  • You and your child always see the attending cancer care physician, not a resident.
  • We work as a multi-disciplinary team and you’ll have convenient access to an expanded team of players, such as pediatric subspecialists, therapists and child-life specialists
  • We stress family-centered cancer care and will be part of your family’s cancer survivorship journey, providing many types of supportive care.

Our attending physicians specialize in the treatment of all types of childhood cancers, especially rare childhood cancers. They are the ones caring for and leading your child’s personalized treatment plan.

  • Central nervous system tumors (brain and spinal cord)
  • Leukemia (acute and relapsed)
  • Lymphoma (Hodgkin’s and non-Hodgkin’s)
  • Neuroblastoma
  • Sarcomas
  • Kidney cancer

We also diagnose a variety of other hematology conditions such as anemia and ITP (immune  thrombocytopenia) which affects the platelets and one’s ability to control bleeding.
