School of Medicine faculty instrumental in recertification of Children’s Hospital Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders
Palmetto Health Children’s Hospital Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders has successfully completed the rigorous Children’s Oncology Group audit, and was certified for the maximum three years. The Children’s Oncology Group is the world’s largest clinical research organization for childhood cancers and is affiliated with more than 250 leading cancer institutes.
Ron Neuberg, MD, director of the Division of Hematology/Oncology at the USC School of Medicine Department of Pediatrics commends Kevin McRedmond, MD, associate professor of pediatrics, Laura Pirich, MD, assistant professor of pediatrics, and Carla Roberts, MD, assistant professor of pediatrics, for their commitment to excellence in treating children with cancer and blood disorders.
“We recognize the team effort of our research staff and caregivers in carrying out the complex care and data collection in the conduct of Children’s Oncology Group research protocols,” said Neuberg. “The Children’s Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders, the outpatient clinic and research staff all work together to achieve this level of care.”
“As part of the Children’s Oncology Group, we provide treatment comparable to the quality of care available at the top pediatric cancer centers in the country,” said Neuberg. “The Children’s Oncology Group is dedicated to the prevention and cure of childhood cancer. Membership in the Children’s Oncology Group ensures that our patients have access to the most up to date treatment protocols available.”
