The Tomorrow Fund Clinic is located in spacious quarters on the first floor of the Hasbro Children's Hospital. The large space occupies the space above the pediatric emergency center and allows for the comfortable flow of patients. The clinic houses 11 patient rooms.
The Edwin N. Forman Hemotology/Oncology Center provides treatment in this modern space. The design streamlines treatment; patients can check in, have their vital signs checked and blood drawn in consecutive rooms. The center offers a comprehensive range of treatments, including chemotherapy and transfusions. Our caring staff treats between 30 and 40 patients per day.
Some children come here for comprehensive care for cancer or serious blood disorders. They come to have their condition accurately diagnosed and to receive appropriate and state-of-the-art treatment. Treatment may consist of transfusions or chemotherapy.
Because these treatments require children to be at the hospital for long periods of time, the new space was designed to make patients as comfortable as possible while streamlining treatment. Quality, patient safety and satisfaction are the top priority at the clinic; these facility improvements meet those priorities and allow the center provide top-quality care right here in Rhode Island.
The clinic works in partnership with The Tomorrow Fund Clinic, one of Hasbro Children's Hospital's most generous donors, an independent, non-profit organization which provides financial and emotional support to child with cancer and their families.
Children also come to the clinic to have the side effects of treatment managed. Some kids require platelet transfusions, or medications to control pain or nausea. During their time in the clinic, we have child life specialist and volunteers to make time in clinic more bearable-some children have so much fun, they don't wish to leave! Social workers are also available during these hours to help support the family, as well as help children cope.
