We are fully dedicated to improve the lives of children with cancer. This starts from day one as we work together to instill hope in our patients’ minds and help them carry on with their day-to-day lives.
Our department is located on the 2nd floor at ZHUMC, housing both inpatient and outpatient facilities.
Our unit was established as a separate unit since 2013. Every child staying overnight has a private room, with comfortable sleeping arrangements to accommodate concerned parents, family members and friends.
A TV, video games and a small library are offered to make the child feel at ease.
