St. Luke's Children's Hospital and St. Luke's Mountain States Tumor Institute (MSTI) are partners in Idaho's only Pediatric Cancer Program and only accredited Hemophilia Center. Four pediatric oncologists/hematologists and a dedicated staff of skilled caregivers provide treatment and support in an environment designed to ease the discomforts of long-term cancer care.
St. Luke's MSTI cares for more than 200 new pediatric patients each year, from infants through young adults. The Pediatric Oncology team works closely with young patients and their families to provide support and education so they know what to expect from treatment, and from raising and caring for a child with a life-threatening illness. The team is committed to making treatment as comfortable and effective as possible, enabling parents to put their focus on caring for their child and helping him or her get better, and allowing the patient to just be a kid.
