Mary Bridge Hematology and Oncology Program
Comprehensive Hematology/Oncology Services
The Mary Bridge Hematology/Pediatric Oncology Program offers a full range of inpatient and outpatient care including medical, surgical and support services for children from birth to age 18 with blood disorders and/or suffering from cancer.
Leading Treatment Protocols
The Mary Bridge Oncology Clinic is part of the Children’s Oncology Group, an international group of pediatric cancer programs that undertakes the latest clinical trials and evaluates the newest cancer treatments for many types of childhood cancer.
The Family-Centered Care Difference
At MultiCare Mary Bridge Children's Hospital & Health Center, our focus is on family-centered care. Since frequent hematology/oncology clinic visits can be difficult for children with pediatric cancer and their families, Mary Bridge emphasizes outpatient therapy with follow-up home care.
Mary Bridge offers support groups for parents as well as for the brothers and sisters of children who are suffering from pediatric cancer. Special events for pediatric cancer patients and their families are also held so our patients can just be kids, and so they can feel like part of the team.
