Cardinals Kids Cancer Center is the pediatric oncology and hematology center at Mercy Children's Hospital. We provide more than 4,000 treatments to pediatric patients each year.
The Cardinals-themed Mercy Clinic Children's Cancer and Hematology in St. Louis, MO is designed with a look and feel reminiscent of Busch Stadium. The unique child-centered environment disguises pediatric cancer care as play and adds an element of fun to a difficult day of treatment for young patients and their families. Mercy developed the Cardinals Kids Cancer Center thanks to a combined challenge gift of $1 million from David Pratt and the St. Louis Cardinals.
The therapy rooms turn the environment of receiving chemotherapy, radiation, blood products and other cancer treatments into a comforting place for children with life-threatening cancer and blood disorders. Complementing these therapy rooms is the Gunn Family Room, where relaxing "pods" are available as a place for children and their families to gather, relax, play games or simply be together.
Childhood is about laughter, giggles and play. Cancer doesn’t have to take all that away. We give childhood back to kids and give families hope.
Our doctors are active members of the Children's Oncology Group (COG), an affiliation of children's oncology specialists who seek the most up-to-date and effective means of treating cancer in our children, teens and young adults through clinical research trials.
