Selecting where a child will receive their cancer treatment is one of the biggest decisions a caregiver can make.  The Hyundai Cancer Institute at CHOC Children’s specializes in providing our patients—from infants through young adults—with the latest pediatric cancer treatments by nationally recognized medical specialists. We are dedicated to not only treating cancer, but also the needs of the whole child—emotional, spiritual, and physical. Children simply shouldn’t have to give up being kids while dealing with the grown-up issue of cancer.

In 2011, Children’s Hospital of Orange County was ranked in eight specialties in U.S. News Media Group’s Best Children’s Hospitals rankings. Among the more than 200 children's hospitals in the United States, the Hyundai Cancer Institute at CHOC Children's ranked 28th in cancer treatment. 

The Hyundai Cancer Institute’s Team Approach
We believe in a team approach to providing treatment to our patients that includes a multidisciplinary team of physicians and specialists and the patient’s family. We understand that a cancer diagnosis touches the lives of the entire family and for this reason are dedicated to a family-centered approach to care that includes immediately pairing patients and their families with a pediatric oncology nurse coordinator who serves as an advocate for the child and family throughout the patient’s course of treatment.  Learn more about what to expect right from the start.
 
The Latest Treatments
Children’s cancers are very different than adult cancers and must be treated with specific pediatric cancer protocols. Our experience in exclusively treating children, teens and young adults makes us the experts in the evaluation and treatment of all forms of common childhood and adolescent cancers. Through our Childrens Oncology Group (COG) membership, the Cancer Institute has received a prestigious Phase I clinical trial designation, making us one of only 22 facilities in North America offering COG's groundbreaking alternative treatments. Learn more about some of the latest treatments being offered at the Cancer Institute.
 
Innovative Programs
Our treatment specific teams work to provide innovative, specialized programs for on-going diagnosis, management and treatment of pediatric cancers.  
 
When a child is ill and needs hospitalization, we understand that the entire family is affected.  Because we so strongly believe in allowing a child to be a child and creating a sense of normalcy through play, discovery and creativity, we are dedicated to offering the most comprehensive support programs in the region. The Cancer Institute offers patients and families:
World-class Care
Our physicians and other health care professionals are all specially trained to work with pediatric oncology patients. In addition to the treatment programs, services, and programs above, the Cancer Institute is proud to offer patients:
