Exceptional Care for Pediatric Cancers and Blood Disorders

Our nationally renowned pediatric hematologists/oncologists combine exceptional expertise, knowledge and skill with advanced therapies to provide compassionate, personalized, research-based care for children, adolescents and young adults close to home. With locations at Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey/Bristol Myers Squibb Children’s Hospital in New Brunswick, the Valerie Fund Children’s Cancer Center at Monmouth Medical Center in Long Branch, and the Children’s Hospital at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center, outstanding care is never far. These facilities are staffed by compassionate and knowledgeable pediatric hematologists/oncologists, oncology nurse practitioners, specialized pediatric oncology nurses, child life specialists and social workers who put an emphasis not just on improving the health of our patients but attending to the psychosocial care of them and their families. Our programs also specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of blood disorders, such as thrombocytopenia, thalassemia and sickle cell anemia.

As New Jersey’s only NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey together with RWJBarnabas Health provides access to the full spectrum of therapeutic procedures and advanced treatment options including precision medicine, clinical trials, immunotherapy, and cellular therapies, many of which are not available elsewhere. In addition, we are one of only two programs in the state to offer pediatric cellular therapy and autologenic blood and marrow transplantation and we have the only hospital-based proton therapy center in the state with expertise in treating pediatric patients.
