If your child has cancer, you need the most advanced treatment options — and you want them delivered in a kid-friendly space. At Baptist Health Miami Cancer Institute, we’re proud to be a safe, welcoming area for our youngest patients and their families.

From a warm, friendly first visit to a play-acting simulation that will help you and your child fully understand what to expect on their cancer journey to their regular doctor visits, our pediatric team members are experts in giving you a smooth, comfortable care experience.

Collaborative Cancer Care

Our pediatric specialists know delivering the best treatment for children requires a multidisciplinary, team-based approach. That’s why we’ve worked closely with South Florida’s leading pediatric facility, Nicklaus Children’s Hospital. Together, we created the region’s largest, most comprehensive pediatric radiation oncology program that offers a full range of radiation therapies, including proton therapy for children.

We know every child’s cancer is different, so they need a personalized treatment plan. Our team of pediatric specialists has the expertise to care for all your child’s needs. Your care team includes radiation oncologists, radiation therapists and medical physicists who all work closely with our pediatric nurses, social workers and child life specialists.

Our providers are trained to treat a full range of conditions. Some of the cancers we treat include:

  • Brain tumors
  • Hodgkin lymphoma
  • Neuroblastoma
  • Sarcoma
  • Spinal cord tumors
Pediatric Support Services

Pediatric Support Services

To treat their cancer, your child needs the most advanced radiation therapies available. But they also have social and emotional needs. Our Pediatric Support Center provides a caring, compassionate environment that supports your entire family. Through engaging activities and a range of complementary therapies, we protect your child’s mental health during treatment and beyond.

South Florida’s First Proton Therapy Center

Baptist Health Miami Cancer Institute is the first cancer center to bring proton therapy to the region. This highly specialized treatment uses targeted proton particles to attack and kill cancer cells in tumors. The therapy largely spares the surrounding healthy tissue and reduces the risk of side effects. This sophisticated treatment is used only for certain types of cancers in a limited number of patients.
