Cancer and Blood Disorders Outreach Locations

Care Closer to Home

The Care Closer to Home program nurtures partnerships between referring providers in your community and Children’s blood disorders and cancer experts and helps families receive care closer to home when possible.

The program allows our board-certified hematology/oncology physicians to see patients at outreach clinics. If you have worked with Children’s to arrange for some of your cancer and blood disorder care to take place at Hudson or St. Cloud, call each location directly to schedule your infusion appointment:
