For children who live in other parts of the state and get most of their care from doctors and hospitals close to home:
- You may visit us at OBCC
- Your families and doctors can consult with us
- We can help coordinate your care
Each summer we hold free camps for children with sickle cell disease. Camps take place on Vashon Island in Puget Sound.
Northwest Sickle Cell Collaborative
We are the founding member of the Northwest Sickle Cell Collaborative (NWSCC). The group’s goals are to improve and streamline screening, care and education for people with sickle cell statewide. Dr. M. A. Bender, our program director, leads the group.
NWSCC combines the resources of OBCC, Seattle Children’s, Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital (Tacoma), Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital (Spokane) and the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance.
