Outpatient and Inpatient Treatment
Because of today’s techniques for managing side effects, more children can stay at home while they receive treatment. Pediatric outpatients are seen in our convenient, full-service Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Clinic, located across from the Treatment Center on the 6th Floor of the Strong Memorial Hospital Ambulatory Care Center. To ease any fear or discomfort, all procedures are performed with sedation, which is administered by a pediatric intensivist.
A drop-in child care service, staffed by a child life assistant and volunteers, is available for the siblings of pediatric patients who have long treatment sessions.
Children needing inpatient care are treated on the 7th floor of the Golisano Children’s Hospital, a warm, friendly environment. The inpatient unit is staffed with highly trained physicians and nurses with specialized pediatric oncology experience, to meet the physical, social, and emotional needs of patients from infancy to young adulthood.
The Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) provides round-the-clock intensive care when necessary.
Children requiring bone marrow transplant are cared for by the Pediatric and Adult Stem Cell Transplantation Center. This Unit is on the 6th floor the Wilmot Cancer Center and has specially equipped isolation rooms and a full staff of nurses.
