Hereditary Spherocytosis

What to Expect

At Children’s, our patients and their families are at the center of all that we do. From the architecture of the buildings to the focus of staff members, everything is designed around the special care your child needs and your experience here.

The Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at Children’s has a multi-talented team of physicians and nurse specialists with expertise in cancer and hematological diseases specific to children, including spherocytosis anemia or HS. From the moment you step through the door, you are cared for by a team that has only your child in mind and the particular expertise your child needs to be treated in a comprehensive manner.

Children’s has a dedicated staff of physicians, specialty nurses and technologists whose sole function is to provide the best care possible for patients with childhood malignancies and blood disorders. The staff also includes child life specialists, social workers, chaplains, dietitians, occupational therapists and physical therapists to assist with each child’s needs. A coordinator works with each patient and family to prepare for any needs that might arise after going home from the hospital. Patients who return to the hospital for follow-up appointments with physicians are relieved to see they are cared for by the same staff.

The center offers a range of amenities for families with children in the hospital, such as quiet family areas, kitchen, laundry and space for a parent to stay in the patient’s room.
