Cancer Center

Our nationally recognized, highly trained doctors and staff are committed to providing top-quality, comprehensive, and well-coordinated cancer care for adults and children.

We want patients to benefit from the latest medical breakthroughs, so we participate in research and clinical trials. Our specialized cancer care means that patients can be treated at home in Hawaii, close to their network of family and friends.

We know that dealing with cancer is more than a medical issue. Our support programs help patients and families cope with the challenges of both the disease and the treatment.

Kapiolani Comprehensive Children's Cancer Center

According to the National Cancer Institute (NCI), children's survival rates are 20- 40 % better when their care is coordinated by a pediatric oncologist, and treatment is received at a comprehensive, multidisciplinary cancer center.

As a member of the NCI-sponsored Children's Cancer Group, Kapiolani's Comprehensive Children's Cancer Center adheres to the institute's strict standards and provides this highly specialized care here in Hawaii, saving families the added stress of traveling to the mainland for treatment. Our team includes pediatric oncologists, pediatric surgeons, specialist surgeons (e.g. neurosurgeon or urologic surgeon), radiation oncologists, pathologists, nurses, consulting pediatric specialists, psychiatrists, oncology social workers, nutritionists, and home health care professionals — all with expertise in treating children and adolescents with cancer.

Thirty years ago, when children were diagnosed with cancer, only about 30% survived. Today, more than 75% of children diagnosed with cancer are overcoming the disease, in great part due to the availability of clinical trials. These research studies represent the latest cancer treatment available in the country.

  • Kapiolani has more than 95 clinical trials for the treatment of children's cancer
  • 85% of Kapiolani's pediatric cancer patients that qualify are taking advantage of one of these new treatment protocols
  • Clinical trials are offered in partnership with the University of Hawaii and the Cancer Research Center
