About Us


Our mission is to deliver compassionate family-centered, state-of-the-art clinical care and education through a multi-disciplinary approach in an academic environment grounded in spiritual and ethical values.


Treating the Disease, Caring for the Child

Keen minds and caring hearts. These are the attributes that set the Lombardi Division of Pediatric Hematology, Oncology, Blood and Marrow Transplantation apart. Our internationally recognized specialists are on the cutting edge of cancer research and treatment. And each staff member is dedicated to providing compassionate care in a setting that encourages our young patients to act like kids-even while they're battling cancer. As the only NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center in the Washington, DC area, Lombardi can provide pediatric patients and their families with the most advanced therapies available, as well as a wide range of resources-including social services, art therapy, dietetic counseling, and emotional and spiritual support. Plus we have the backing of an acclaimed academic center-Georgetown University Hospital-to ensure that every patient receives unsurpassed care.
