Hyundai Cancer Institute at CHOC

Selecting where a child will receive cancer treatment is one of the biggest decisions a caregiver can make. The Hyundai Cancer Institute at CHOC specializes in providing patients—from infants through young adults—with the latest pediatric cancer treatments by nationally recognized medical specialists. We are dedicated to not only treating cancer, but also the needs of the whole child—emotional, spiritual, and physical. Children simply shouldn’t have to give up being kids while dealing with the grown-up issue of cancer.
