About Our Hematology, Oncology and BMT Facilities :: Nationwide Children's Hospital

About Our Facilities


Complete Continuum of Care

Hematology/Oncology patients often require several hospitalizations, as well as outpatient and homecare services. Families, especially those with children undergoing a bone marrow transplant whose average length of stay is six weeks, need support and services that go beyond their child’s medical needs. Our complete inpatient and outpatient services are designed to support families throughout their child’s treatment.
