Why choose Ochsner Health for your child’s pediatric cancer care?
Nothing stops a parent in their tracks quite like these four words: “Your child has cancer.”
If your child is one of the more than 200-plus kids in Louisiana diagnosed with cancer this year, your top priority is finding a team of pediatric cancer experts who can provide a combination of innovative treatment options, advanced technology and compassionate care — and it’s our priority at Ochsner Hospital for Children to deliver on those expectations.
At Ochsner Hospital for Children, some of the country’s most dedicated and passionate pediatric specialists, including oncologists, surgeons and radiation oncologists, work together to develop a personalized care plan for each child, teen and young adult. But your child’s care isn’t limited to doctors specializing in hematology and oncology. Because cancer and its treatment can impact a child’s growth and development, we also rely on Ochsner’s team of pediatric experts in fields like audiology, cardiology, endocrinology, genetics, neurology and orthopedics to provide your child with comprehensive care. And our child life services team can help your child understand their diagnosis and treatment and have as much fun as possible while they’re receiving inpatient or outpatient care.
As part of the Ochsner Cancer Institute, a leader in pediatric cancer and blood disorders treatment and research, Ochsner Hospital for Children’s pediatric cancer care team understands the unique needs of your child, teen or young adult. We work to develop a comprehensive treatment plan that not only offers access to some of the newest treatments for childhood cancer, but also takes their social and emotional needs into consideration. Since 1954, Ochsner has been working hard at one goal: to give your child the best chance at a healthier life.
