It's a new day for the treatment of childhood cancer and blood disorders. The St. Jude Affiliate Clinic at Novant Health Hemby Children's Hospital gives your child access to more life-saving treatments and clinical trials than at any other facility in the region.
The clinic is the only St. Jude Children's Research Hospital affiliate in the Southeast. It is one of just two nationwide to take part in clinical trials with both St. Jude and the Children's Oncology Group. That means world-class care is available closer to home.
Since it opened in 1962, St. Jude has helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80%. Based in Memphis, Tennessee, St. Jude translates research discoveries into life-saving treatments. St. Jude is a top national referral center for children with hard-to-treat cancers and blood disorders.
In some cases, children treated at St. Jude Affiliate Clinic at Novant Health Hemby Children's Hospital may go to St. Jude to take part in clinical trials and then return to Charlotte for ongoing care. Our doctors will work with St. Jude experts on your child's treatment plan. To help your child thrive during treatment, your family will have access in Charlotte to special support services. These include experts ranging from social workers to pastoral staff to child life specialists.
We're excited to build on the top-notch pediatric care for which Novant Health is known. The care you expect - and the care your child deserves.
