Dr. Letterio's Welcome Message

If you are reading this Web page, it’s likely that a child you love has a blood disorder or cancer. If so, I’d like to share with you my conviction that University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital and University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center offers everything you could possibly want in a health care facility: top-notch care, the most promising new treatments, nationally known researchers and educators and a dedicated, compassionate team of clinicians and nurses devoted to improving the lives of infants, children, teenagers, and young adults.

We are a proud part of UH Seidman Cancer Center, a leader in the field of cancer research and one of the top National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers in the nation. As such, we participate in major clinical trials of new drugs, pioneering techniques and novel devices for cancer treatment and afford our patients opportunities for investigational therapies not available at other centers in the region.

The Center is also a full member of the Children’s Oncology Group (COG), the nation’s largest consortium of medical centers for pediatric cancer therapy. Our goal is not only to control cancer, but to cure it.

Our professional team also provides highly specialized care to non-malignant diseases of the blood. As world leaders in the care of sickle cell anemia, hemophilia and other blood disorders you and your family are assured top medical care.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about the UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital’s pediatric hematology and oncology division and our ability to help young people with cancer and blood disorders. My staff and I are ready to assist in any way we can.

John Letterio, MD
