Cancer and Blood Disorders Center
Meet Your Team
Seattle Children’s Cancer and Blood Disorders Center team is specially trained and highly experienced in treating babies, children, teens and young adults (up to age 30 for some cancers).
Our caring professionals specialize in blood disorders and cancer (hematology-oncology) and in meeting the unique needs of children. Your healthcare team includes experts from many specialties to care for your whole child, not just their disease. We support our patients and their families through all aspects of their journey – from keeping up with school during treatment to getting follow-up care as they become adults.

Inpatient Care – Acute care oncologists
Our night-time inpatient team includes acute care oncologists (ACOs). ACOs are doctors who are board certified in hematology-oncology. Few children’s hospitals offer this level of around-the-clock subspecialty care. In addition to the ACOs, our daytime inpatient team also includes advanced practice providers (APPs), who are either nurse practitioners (ARNPs) or physician assistants (PA-Cs) who are licensed and credentialed to diagnose, prescribe and teach patients with cancer and blood disorders.
Radiation Therapy Service options at Seattle Children’s include I-131-MIGB and a precise type of radiation called proton therapy.
