Journey Clinic - Center for Children with Cancer and Blood Disorders

Clinic Overview

At University of Minnesota Physicians and University of Minnesota Amplatz Children’s Hospital, a nationally and internationally recognized team of pediatric hematologist-oncologists provides comprehensive care for children with a wide range of malignant and nonmalignant diseases. Expert consultation and management is available for children with anemia, including sickle cell disease and congenital anemias, disorders of blood clotting (both bleeding and thrombotic disorders), cancer, and immune deficiency, and for long-term survivors of childhood cancers. We have access to conventional as well as innovative therapies created at the University of Minnesota and throughout the United States. Many new treatments for children with cancer were developed by University of Minnesota Physicians and are now part of national treatment standards used across the nation.

Summer construction notice to patients

Construction may increase dust and soil amounts in the air. This can raise the risk of immunocompromised patients developing Aspergillus infection or other problems.

What can you do?
1. Wear a high-efficiency filtration mask (N95) to protect yourself from excessive dust exposure when near a construction area. (Masks can be purchased at Home Depot or Walgreen’s, or you may obtain one at your clinic.)
2. If you’re coming to the U of M East Bank, use the tunnel from the patient parking lot on Harvard and Delaware St.

Questions? Please call your clinic or ask your care team at your visit.
