Pediatric Hematology / Oncology / HCTT

Our Pediatric Hematology-Oncology division is the only clinical unit in the College of Medicine-Tucson (COM-T) spanning three cities (Tucson, Mesa and Glendale) and three hospitals (Banner University MedicalCenter [BUMC-T], Banner Desert Medical Center [BDMC] and Banner Thunderbird Medical Center [BTMC]).

It is the prototype of a fully integrated clinical partnership providing care for pediatric, adolescent and young adult patients with cancer and blood disorders throughout the state. Our ten Pediatric Hematologist-Oncologists (six in Tucson and four in the Phoenix area) have faculty appointments in the Department of Pediatrics and COM-T and are part of Banner University Medical Group (BUMG) and the ten pediatric hematology-oncology nurse practitioners (five in Tucson, three in Mesa and two in Glendale) are specialty instructors in the COM-T and also part of BUMG.

Our staff provide a comprehensive and integrated approach to patient care in hematology, oncology, adolescent and young adult (AYA) oncology, cancer survivorship, cell therapy and transplantation, working closely across campuses to manage complex patients often shared between clinicians with unique expertise.
