Peckham Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders

A cancer diagnosis can be devastating and change a child’s and family’s life in an instant. Here at the Peckham Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders, we offer a full range of pediatric clinical services, as well as psychosocial programs and resources, to help patients and their families – from diagnosis through treatment and beyond.

Rady Children’s oncology nurse Kelly Mikulsky knows that her daughter, Kaylee, is in good hands. Read their story.

U.S. News BadgeComprehensive, compassionate care is provided by the Hematology/Oncology Division of Rady Children’s Specialists of San Diego. Along with providing specialized cancer treatment and hematology services to children in San Diego, Imperial, and southern Riverside counties, our pediatric oncologists and pediatric hematologists provide select services to children in northern Mexico, the Pacific Islands, and southern Orange County.

The entire cancer and blood disorders center, including the Viterbi Outpatient Clinic, is housed at our incredible Acute Care Pavilion. There are 38 private rooms and advanced high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filtration, helping to reduce the risk of infection. And just steps away, you’ll find Carley’s Magical Garden, a whimsical, interactive place where kids can escape the world of medicine.

Through research in the lab and at the bedside, our pediatric oncologists and pediatric hematologists evaluate the most promising treatments, with the hope of discovering cures. As a leading pediatric teaching program, we train the best and brightest future physicians.
