The Division of Pediatric Hematology at Columbia University is committed to outstanding patient care, research, and education. Our mission is three-fold: 1) to provide personalized high quality, comprehensive care of children and adolescents with hematologic disorders; 2) to promote advances in biomedical research in the management of hematological conditions; and 3) to foster academic experience, education and training. Our Faculty provides expert inpatient and outpatient services from early diagnosis to continuing care and follow up of a wide spectrum of blood-related diseases.

Our newly established St. Giles Comprehensive Sickle Cell and Thalassemia Center provides comprehensive, family-centered care to pediatric patients with sickle cell disease and thalassemia. The Center is focused on guaranteeing consistent provision of the best evidence-based treatments, assuring early recognition of risks of preventable complications and providing dependable support for effective family and patient self-management. The program provides a variety of services to the communities of Harlem, Northern Manhattan, and the tri-state area, including newborn screening in sickle cell disease, stroke prevention, chronic transfusion and iron-chelating therapy, pain management, community outreach, and patient education programs.
