New Tomorrow Fund Clinic Opens at Hasbro Children’s Hospital

News — By on June 7, 2009 at 8:23 am

The newly renovated Tomorrow Fund Clinic at Hasbro Children’s Hospital has officially opened to young hematology and oncology patients. The clinic, which was formerly located in the lower level of Hasbro Children’s Hospital, is now located on the first floor, near the main entrance.

The Tomorrow Fund Clinic at Hasbro Children’s Hospital will serve as the site for the newly named Edwin N. Forman Pediatric Hematology/ Oncology Outpatient Program, which includes services for patients with cancer and hematologic diseases including hemostatic disorders, sickle cell disease, hemoglobinopathies, anemia, and platelet and white cell disorders.

The new 4,700 square foot clinic features seven new private exam rooms, a larger playroom and a more centralized nurses’ station.

The playroom is an essential part of the clinic, as children who are receiving treatment often spend many hours at a time at the hospital.

There are also four new infusion rooms, which can be closed off with sliding doors for privacy, or opened up for socialization between patients who are receiving treatment.

A positive pressure room has been added for patients who are severely immunocompromised or have recently had a bone marrow transplant. A new negative pressure room protects the other children from a patient with a potentially communicable disease.

The clinic serves approximately 30 to 40 child and adolescent patients per day.
