Inside the Mercy Jane Pitt Pediatric Cancer Center, you’ll find the nation’s sixth St. Jude-affiliated pediatric hematology/oncology clinic, serving children in Springfield, MO and throughout southwest Missouri and northern Arkansas. Being a St. Jude affiliate site allows us to enroll patients in St. Jude’s world-famous clinical research trials – right here at Mercy Children’s Hospital Springfield. Through collaboration with the team at St. Jude in Memphis, the physicians and staff of the St. Jude Mercy Affiliate Clinic make it possible for children battling cancer to receive exceptional treatment, close to home.
We’ve helped thousands of kids with cancer and blood-related disorders, including treatment for:
- Solid tumors
- Platelet disorder
- Brain tumors
- Sickle cell anemia
We offer a pediatric specialist in hematology/oncology, as well as pediatric-trained, chemotherapy-certified nurses. In addition, our child-centered staff includes a practice manager, Child Life specialist, social worker, nutrition consultant, physical, occupational and speech therapists.
In addition to our expert clinical team, our skilled financial team can assist families with their insurance and financial needs. Most insurance carriers consider a patient’s care “in network” regardless of contracting arrangements. Our team can help parents navigate the complex insurance issues allowing them to concentrate on the health and healing of their child.
