    Treatment of pediatric patients requires special care and attention. The Pediatric Hematology and Oncology Team diagnoses and treats childhood hematologic and immunologic disorders and malignancies. With expertise in the management of childhood leukemia and solid tumors, the faculty actively participates in treatment protocols of the Children’s Oncology Group, the National Pediatric Clinical Oncology Cooperative Group sponsored by the National Cancer Institute. Attending physicians, not fellows, personally manage the day-to-day care of our patients. We take pride in the fact that children in Central and Eastern Kentucky can receive the same state-of-the-art therapy close to home as they would at any pediatric oncology center anywhere in the country.
