The Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders has been renamed the Pauline Allen Gill Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders in honor of the Pauline Allen Gill Foundation.
The Foundation donated $10 million designated to support the cancer and blood disorders center at Children’s. This generous gift has helped fund the construction and renovation of the sixth floor of the Children’s Medical Center Dallas campus. The 56,000-square-foot space, scheduled to be completed by the end of 2013, will include:
- The Hematology, Oncology and Stem Cell Transplant clinics
- Eighteen new infusion bays for procedures like transfusions and chemotherapy
- Renovated inpatient rooms
- Eight new inpatient rooms
- Staff offices
- A state-of-the-art oncology/hematology pharmacy
The Gill Center is a Leader in the Fight Against Childhood Cancer
The Children’s Gill Center is a member of the Children’s Oncology Group (COG), the world’s largest organization uniting more than 8,000 experts in childhood cancer at more than 200 leading children’s hospitals, universities and cancer centers across North America, Australia, New Zealand and Europe in the fight against childhood cancer.
U.S. News and World Report recently ranked the Gill Center on its Best Children’s Hospitals Survey for the sixth year.
