Our collaboration and leadership within the national Children's Oncology Group and membership in the Dana-Farber Leukemia Consortium give our patients access to the most up-to-date national cooperative group therapies.
Our dedicated doctors are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We treat patients in our pediatric emergency room, outpatient clinic, or inpatient service at Hasbro Children's Hospital. Our goal is to offer individualized approaches that incorporate trusted scientific evidence and innovative ideas. We strive to allow and support families to make the best choices for their child. By offering local services we attempt to minimize time spent at the hospital and maximize family time at home.
