New SBUMC Pediatric Hem/Onc Facility is Bright, Spacious Setting for Kids Needing Outpatient Care


The new outpatient treatment facility features added space, on-site imaging center, play areas

STONY BROOK, N.Y., February 12, 2007 ? More than 40 children were evaluated or treated for cancer or blood disorders at the new outpatient suite for Pediatric Hematology/Oncology at Stony Brook University Medical Center when it opened during the first week of February. The suite is a component of the newly opened, free standing 65,000 square foot state-of-the-art outpatient services facility located on the Medical Center campus.

Outpatient services for Pediatric Hematology/Oncology were relocated from an area inside the hospital to the state-of-the-art, bright spacious new facility. The new suite features added space for chemotherapy treatment and examinations, and a private transfusion room. The new treatment facility also includes a playroom and game area, along with a wide screen flat TV. Lining the hallways and exam areas are colorful photographs of tropical fish, seals and other sea creatures.

"The move benefits patients and their families," says Robert I. Parker, M.D., Director of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology. ?Patients receive comprehensive care in one building that also includes an imaging center for diagnostic services, a chemopharmacy and dedicated cancer laboratory services.?

The newly constructed outpatient building is adjacent to the Ambulatory Surgery Center. The facility houses outpatient services provided by Stony Brook University Cancer Center including the Carol M. Baldwin Breast Care Center. A new Outpatient Imaging Center and the Pain Management Center are also located at the new facility.

Lori DeMello-Seda, R.N., shares a smile and laugh with Ariz, whose family traveled from Pakistan to have him treated at SBUMC for hepatoblastoma, the most common form of liver cancer in infants. Pediatric oncologist M. Yasar Celiker, M.D., is caring for Ariz and says the infant will need a liver transplant in order to have a chance to be cured. His parents have set up a website asking for donations. The address is www.helpaariz.com.
