About Our Center

Blank Children's has been offering blood disorder and cancer treatment for more than 36 years. In 2013, a newly expanded Cancer and Blood Disorders Center supported by The Deb and Jeff Hansen Foundation was opened. This new location offers highly-specialized treatment from a multi-disciplinary team of providers. Our family-friendly clinic provides the best possible health care for children and their families. Adjacent to our clinic is the Blank Infusion Center, conveniently located should your child need chemotherapy or another type of infusion treatment.
