Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Fund
The Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Clinic provides highly specialized care to children and young adults with disorders of the blood or cancer. Bronson understands the importance of providing information and education to patients and families about their condition and treatment. This can be a frightening time for children and families and we take extra steps to provide comfort and support. We treat children and young adults for Cancer, Hemophilia and other bleeding disorders, Sickle Cell disease, Blood clotting disorders, and other rare blood disorders.
The Pediatric Hematology/Oncology fund supports the Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Clinic with an emphasis on enhancements to and safeguarding the patient experience. This includes but is not limited to programs and activities for patients and families, training and education for Pediatric Hematology/Oncology staff, and new technologies for the clinic.
In 2015 and 2016, the Foundation was able to utilize donor funds to provide the Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Clinic with a makeover. This makeover includes new artwork on the walls of the waiting and exam rooms, new exam tables, new furniture in the waiting room, exam rooms, and the group infusion room. Also, new gaming area, arts and crafts area, lighting fixtures and mural in the group infusion room as well as brand new toys for all patients to enjoy. We were also able to provide four iPads for patients to use for distraction and entertainment.
