Improving the Health of Today's and Tomorrow's Children
The Division of Pediatric Hematology & Oncology at
the Mattel Children's Hospital UCLA is a pioneer in the
care and treatment of childhood cancers and blood disorders. The
division is part of the Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer
Center, well known for its new and innovative ways of
treating patients. It has a long history of success in bringing
hope to patients with programs such as our Bone Marrow
Transplant Unit, which has been in continuous operation
since 1973, the oldest unit in California, and one of the first
in the nation.
For more than 40 years, we have provided our patients with the
best care and have made seminal contributions to improving
treatment of children with leukemia, aplastic anemia, solid
tumors, blood diseases, and various genetic disorders.
We are finding new ways to improve survival rates and decrease
complications in children being treated for cancer, blood
disorders or undergoing bone marrow transplantation. With the
support of our multidisciplinary team, including Child Life
specialists and social workers, our efforts continue to
significantly improve the quality of care and quality of life for
these children and their families.
Each year, we see an increasing number of young cancer survivors
as a result of ongoing research and innovative cancer treatments
performed by our team of physicians, faculty, fellows and staff.
These advancements are made possible by our dedicated supporters
and donors, who are truly committed to making a difference.
Those of us who work in the Division of Pediatric
Hematology & Oncology at Mattel Children's Hospital
UCLA wholeheartedly believe that each child is precious and
should be able to experience the joys of childhood, not forced to
confront illness, pain, disability, and mortality. Improving our
patients' quality of life is what motivates us to solve the
mysteries of pediatric cancers and blood disorders.
Since 1990, the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center has ranked as
the "Best in the West" by U.S. News & World Report's
America's Best Hospitals Survey.
