  • Your family is now a member of ours. Caring for a child with cancer can be stressful. Every day there’s another decision to be made. You’re not alone. We are partners in your child’s care and will work with you to develop treatment plans that meet all of his or her health care and personal needs.
  • We know kids deserve the best. The doctors and nurses in the MACC Fund Center constantly are studying the causes, treatments, side effects and long-term outcomes of cancer and blood disorders. Teams of specialists take problems from the bedside and clinic into the laboratory, and return with better treatments. This is how we can provide the most advanced and best care options.
  • Patient care and research go hand in hand. Our team members are national and international experts who are paving the way for new treatments and cures for cancer and blood disorders. We are the only children's hospital in the state, and 1 of just 21 top centers in the country to participate in the Phase I & Pilot Consortium of Children's Oncology Group, a National Cancer Institute-supported clinical trials group. We're partnering with other elite centers to help patients with some of the most difficult-to-cure types of cancer and blood disorders. You can be sure that we’re providing a level of care few others can match.
  • One of the best in the nation. Our program also named among the nation's best in U.S. News & World Report's 2017-18 Best Children's Hospitals report.
