It's a new day for the treatment of childhood cancer and blood disorders. In 2001, the St. Jude Affiliate Clinic at Novant Health Hemby Children's Hospital began treating children with cancer and a wide range of blood disorders. It is the only St. Jude Children's Research Hospital Affiliate Clinic in the Carolinas, and the only pediatric Oncology Clinic in the Southeast area providing children with access to both St. Jude and Children's Oncology Group clinical trials. That means world-class care is available closer to home.
In April 2017, our clinic was recognized by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as a Center of Excellence providing comprehensive hemophilia care for children. As a pediatric hemophilia treatment center (HTC), we are able to provide access to physicians, nurses, physical therapists and social workers with extensive training in taking care of children with complex blood disorders. We provide high-quality care that meets national standards while offering innovative therapies and a broad network of consultants across the country.
Since it opened in 1962, St. Jude has helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80%. Based in Memphis, Tennessee, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital translates research discoveries into life-saving cancer treatments. St. Jude is a top national referral center for children with hard-to-treat cancers and blood disorders.
