A child with cancer deserves the most advanced treatments available, delivered by compassionate, caring experts. With decades of experience treating complicated illnesses in children, California Pacific Medical Center’s pediatric teams support you and your family through this stressful time and guide you along each step in cancer treatment, from diagnosis to recovery.
CPMC’s Pediatric Hematology and Oncology Program and Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) are certified by California Children's Services, demonstrating our pediatric expertise and the high level of care available for young children and adolescents. Our pediatric cancer care teams are led by fellowship-trained, board-certified physicians who specialize in treating cancers in children.

Special Pediatric Needs
We offer many special services to meet the unique psychological and emotional needs of children. When hospitalization is necessary, pediatric child life specialists and clinical social workers ensure that children going through treatment still get to be kids.
We are committed to improving cancer and blood disorder treatments for children. We work closely with researchers both within the Sutter Health clinical network and at major academic medical centers to ensure patients have access to all relevant clinical trials.
