• Cancer Institute 


    Cancer Services at HSHS St. John's Hospital brings powerful resources to preventing and fighting cancer.

    As a teaching hospital we have physicians and researchers who provide patients with cutting edge cancer therapies. Our patients have access to clinical researchers exploring cancer-fighting treatments for adult and pediatric cancers. As a research facility we exchange information with other cancer centers across the country, and we maintain a cancer registry of more than 20,000 case studies of treatments and techniques.

    St. John’s Children’s Hospital takes special care of kids with cancer, too. Pediatric oncologists at the Cancer Institute participate in nationwide clinical trial protocols from the Children’s Oncology Group to give our patients access to the same clinical research trials as other major children’s research hospitals nationwide.
