For five consecutive years, the Pauline Allen Gill Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at Children’s Health℠  has been ranked one of the best pediatric cancer centers in the nation by U.S. News & World Report.

Specialized Experts

A multidisciplinary clinical program is offered for all oncology patients. This means that your child is treated by a team of experts in each area of care.

Comprehensive Care

Our pediatric oncologists treat all pediatric cancers, even the rarest malignancies, through programs that provide comprehensive care for the entire family. 

Why Children's Health℠?

The oncology service at the Pauline Allen Gill Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders is one of the nation’s premier programs for children with malignant disorders. The center offers a full array of the latest diagnostic capabilities and therapies available.

The breadth and depth of specialists and subspecialists at the Gill Center is unrivaled in North Texas. With 24 pediatric hematologists and oncologists on staff, all of whom are faculty members at UT Southwestern Medical Center, we care for more than 1,000 new patients each year. This makes the Gill Center the largest childhood cancer and blood disorders treatment center in the region.

Our treatment results equal or exceed those at the most prestigious pediatric cancer centers in the country. The Center has a leadership position in the National Institutes of Health-sponsored international consortium called the Children’s Oncology Group (COG). We are one of only 20 institutions within COG approved for experimental new drug trials.

In addition to providing exceptional clinical care, the Center is focused on gaining new knowledge. We conduct research on these disorders and share that knowledge by educating the next generation of physicians and scientists.  This also adds to the depth of care that we can bring to the most important patient, your child. 

Cancer Susceptibility Program

The Gill Center Cancer Susceptibility Program is a program found nowhere else in North Texas. This innovative program provides families of children who have an increased likelihood of developing cancer due to genetics, with access to the most advanced genetic counseling, ongoing screening and oncology specialists.

The Program works to find those children who are more likely to develop some forms of cancer and watches over them to detect, and if necessary, treat cancers as early as possible.
