The Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at Children’s Hospital Colorado is one of the best pediatric oncology, hematology, blood and marrow transplant/cellular therapy programs in the country.

Expert clinical care is just the beginning. At Children’s Colorado, healing goes well beyond medicine. We do whatever it takes to make kids physically and emotionally comfortable, so they can heal faster and get home sooner. From our red wagons and teen lounges, to our specially sized furniture and medical equipment, everything we do is specifically tailored to kids and teens.
Why choose us for cancer and blood disorder care
As a parent, you want the best care possible for your child. When your child has been diagnosed with cancer or a blood disorder, you want to find a team that has world-class pediatric experience, competitive outcomes and access to the most current and effective treatment options.
Our Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders is the only pediatric center providing care for patients with cancer and blood disorders from birth to age 25 in our region. Beyond our region, we’re an international resource for particularly rare or complex hematology and oncology diseases. As part of a world-renowned research center, we have access to the best treatment options available anywhere, and our experts are leading the way to the next generation of treatments.
Who we treat at CCBD
Our team of specialists work collaboratively to treat a wide range of cancers and non-malignant blood disorders including solid tumors, leukemia and Hodgkin lymphoma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma, brain tumors, hemophilia and sickle cell anemia, immunodeficiencies and other metabolic conditions. Our pediatric experts treat infants through adolescents, and also specialize in treating young adults from ages 16 through 25.
This age range is key, as studies have shown that children with cancer who are treated in a pediatric or adolescent setting have better outcomes than those treated in an adult settings.
Every aspect of our care is tailored to kids, teens and young adults to support their unique physical and emotional needs. Many of our treatments and technologies are designed exclusively for pediatric use. And, we have resources available for our patients and their families – including child life specialists, an art therapy program, medical dogs and a wellness program team that supports the needs of both our patients and their families.
