Children's Cancer Institute

A Commitment to Compassionate Care

At the Children's Cancer Institute, we understand the devastation that a diagnosis such as pediatric cancer can have on a family. Whether you are a patient or loved one, a referring physician or potential supporter, our award-winning team is prepared to deliver world-class care using the most advanced methods of treatment in an environment designed especially for our pediatric patients and their families.

The Children's Cancer Institute is a comprehensive program for children, adolescents and young adults (until age 22), that offers patients a multidisciplinary approach to treat all types of cancer and blood diseases. Our Blood and Marrow Transplant Program is the only pediatric stem cell transplant program in the state of New Jersey, and our physicians and medical staff are some of the most prominent providers in their field.  Our dedicated research team gives our patients access to more than 100 cutting-edge clinical trials.

But above all, what sets the Children's Cancer Institute apart is our commitment to compassionate, personalized care. From diagnosis to treatment, and beyond – we are there for patients and their families every step of the way. In fact, we are home to the first and most comprehensive off-campus program for childhood cancer survivors in the state. The entire team of leading physicians, nurses and psychosocial staff members work together to make sure that every patient is provided the highest level of care in the most comfortable setting possible.

Since its establishment in 1987, the Children's Cancer Institute at HackensackUMC (formerly The Tomorrows Childrens Institute) has grown to be New Jersey's premier pediatric center for the diagnosis and treatment of cancer and blood disorders.


We're There for Children

The Children's Cancer Institute provides comprehensive inpatient and outpatient oncology and hematology services for children up to the 22nd birthday.

Because we know a diagnosis of cancer or a serious blood disorder can be devastating to the entire family, we pay special attention to the psychosocial needs of our patients, their family members, friends, and classmates.

We're also there for you, not only to give your child the best opportunity to continue a full life, but to support you and attend to your concerns throughout all stages of your child’s treatment and beyond.
