Who We Are
Novant Health Blume Pediatric Hematology & Oncology has served the Charlotte area since 2000. We are named in memory of Sherri Blume, who succumbed to a brain tumor in 1967. Our mission is and always has been to provide the highest quality care with compassion and dedication.
Your child’s health doesn’t take a break, nor does your concern for them. That’s why the nurses and physicians at our clinic are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. A phone call at 3:00 a.m will get you a doctor’s prompt response. We know that direct access is key to great communication and successful treatment.
State of the Art Medicine
Our doctors regularly take part in continuing education conferences and classes to learn the very latest in pediatric cancer and blood disorder treatments. We offer the same studies and therapies as larger clinics, with the individual attention and compassion on a smaller office can provide. While we are a full-service clinic, we know that collaboration is a key to treatment success. Your child and family will have local resources and support, but will have access to a network of resources from across the country, including the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
Blume Pediatric Hematology & Oncology is part of the Children’s Oncology Group, the world’s largest organization devoted to childhood and adolescent cancer research. The group has more than 100 active clinical trials open at any time. Our patients benefit from this networks of resources and advanced care. Our clinic also works closely with renowned cancer hospitals including St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Massachusetts General Hospital and The University of Texas’ MD Anderson Cancer Center.
Here at home, Presbyterian Hemby Children’s Hospital offers some of the most modern and innovative children’s health facilities available. Our physicians regularly see patients at Presbyterian’s facilities in Charlotte, Matthews and Huntersville. Should your child require hospitalization, our physicians will oversee care before, during and after the hospital stay.
