St. Jude® Tri-Cities Affiliate Clinic at Niswonger Children’s Hospital

All pediatric hematology and oncology care at Niswonger Children’s Hospital is provided through the St. Jude Tri-Cities Affiliate Clinic, an outpatient clinic located in the hospital.

The St. Jude® Tri-Cities Affiliate Clinic at the hospital – one of only eight clinics in the nation that are part of the St. Jude Domestic Affiliate Program – is a partnership between St. Jude Children’s® Research Hospital, ETSU and Niswonger Children’s.

Cancer treatment

We receive more than 3,000 outpatient visits every year and follows more than 300 children with malignant cancers, offering children and young adults the highest quality of care with compassion and dedication.

Blood disorder treatment

We also treat many children with congenital bleeding disorders and a variety of other hematological problems.

The First Regional Hemophilia Program, a state-sponsored program for congenital bleeding disorders, is housed in the St. Jude® Tri-Cities clinic and has quarterly programs for children and adults with hemophilia.

About the St. June Affiliate program

We think of the St. Jude Affiliate program as a “Hospital without Walls.” The Tri-Cities Affiliate Clinic is part of the St. Jude mission to extend advanced care and benefits to more children.

The professionals at the Tri-Cities clinic work closely with St. Jude Children’s® Research Hospital staff to deliver protocol-related care to hematology and oncology patients.

The Tri-Cities clinic meets the high care standards St. Jude requires and is audited every year to annual audits that confirm our ongoing capability and commitment to quality.
