THE STORY:

Please sponsor me in running and help contribute to eradicating childhood cancer! The Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at Children’s Hospital provides comprehensive care with a multidisciplinary team approach. Faculty from LSU Health Sciences Center works with a team of specialized professionals including surgeons, pathologists, radiologists, radiation oncologists, nurses, pharmacists, psychologists, social workers and others to provide up-to-date, compassionate "total care" for the child and family. The hospital has dedicated areas for inpatient and outpatient care, providing treatment for children with cancer, sickle cell anemia, hemophilia, and other blood disorders The LaNasa-Greco Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders treats more than 1,100 children each year. Children's Hospital treats more Louisiana kids with cancer than all other facilities combined.


Children’s Hospital is a 247-bed, not-for-profit pediatric medical center offering a complete range of healthcare services for children from birth to 21 years. With over 40 pediatric specialties and more than 400 physicians, it is the only full-service hospital exclusively for children in Louisiana and the Gulf South.  


In 2016, Children's Hospital recorded patient visits from 62 of the 64 parishes in Louisiana, 39 states and 2 foreign countries.  In all, the hospital recorded 157,275 patient visits.  


Critical care is provided in the hospital’s 36-bed Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), 24-bed Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU), and 20-bed Cardiac Intensive Care Unit (CICU), the only one dedicated entirely to the care of Cardiac patients from birth to Adulthood.   


The hospital’s Jack M. Weiss Emergency Care Center, one of the area’s busiest emergency rooms, is staffed around the clock by board-certified pediatricians, with the availability of a full range of pediatric specialists. 


The Emergency Department has a total of 35 exam rooms and is supported by a nursing staff specially trained to handle pediatric emergencies.  


Outpatient appointments with pediatric specialists are offered at the Ambulatory Care Center on the hospital campus and at the hospital’s satellite locations throughout Louisiana: The Metairie Center, Children’s Hospital Outpatient Center of Baton Rouge, and Children’s Hospital Burdin Riehl Clinic in Lafayette. In addition to these, specialists see patients in Alexandria, Covington, Houma, Lake Charles, Monroe, Slidell, Thibodaux, and Gulfport, Mississippi.
