Physician-scientists at The Kenneth W. Ford Northwest Children’s Cancer Center care for 80 percent of Oregon children with cancer. Doernbecher is Oregon and Southwest Washington’s major pediatric referral center for children with cancer and the only hospital between Seattle and San Francisco that performs bone marrow/stem cell transplants for children.
Doernbecher’s facility includes a 22-bed cancer inpatient unit, an infusion center for chemotherapy treatments and a cancer outpatient clinic. It features a play area, healing garden, and classroom so that children can keep up on school work during extended stays. The infusion rooms are spacious and private, with enough room to accommodate families who wish to remain with children undergoing treatment.
In addition to the excellent care provided in the new facility, researchers at Doernbecher are conducting exciting research that may one day lead to improved treatments and, in some cases, cures for various types of childhood cancer.
This facility and the work it supports would not have been possible without the extraordinary support of Doernbecher donors. Your gift will help the center to continue its missions of providing state of the art clinical care and pursuing cures for childhood cancer.
