The Division of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology at The Brooklyn Hospital Center was established in 1991 to provide state-of-the-art medical care to children and adolescents affected with blood disorders and cancer.
The division is staffed by a multidisciplinary team of three board certified pediatric hematologist-oncologists, two registered nurses, a social worker, a child-life specialist, a school teacher, an office manager, a clinical research assistant and a community outreach coordinator.
This highly trained team of professionals provides care in a friendly and pleasant environment and assists in improving quality of life for our pediatric patients.
