Chris Evert Children’s Hospital Completes New Pediatric Cancer Center
Construction of the Chris Evert Children’s Hospital Pediatric Hematology and Oncology Center, a $1.2 million dollar, 3,150-square-foot expansion project, has come to a close.
Funded completely by donations from more than 2,500 individuals, schools, and other organizations, the new facility includes individual exam rooms, an infusion area decorated with child-friendly murals, and a comprehensive pediatric cancer program staffed by two board-certified pediatric hematology/oncology physicians and a dedicated nursing staff. The family-centered care philosophies that Chris Evert Children’s Hospital embraces is forefront in this new facility, which includes a 215-gallon salt-water fish tank, flat screen televisions, computers, video games consoles, and more. The Center also includes a sibling program.
Chris Evert Children’s Hospital Pediatric Hematology and Oncology Center now provides daily treatment for patients ages 21 and younger who need blood transfusions, chemotherapy infusions, lab draws, IV hydrations, sickle cell and oncology wellness care, port flushes, bone marrow aspirations and biopsies, and other infusions for rheumatology and gastroenterology patients.
Thank you to the more than 2,500 individuals, schools, and organizations that have made the expansion of the Pediatric Hematology and Oncology Center at Chris Evert Children’s Hospital a reality. Because of your generosity, our community’s children in need can be seen by doctors in a kid-friendly, comfortable surrounding.
