Welcome from the Chief

The Division of Hematology and Oncology includes physicians with a diversity of interests and skills.  The faculty is comprised of individuals devoted to benign hematology, hemostasis and thrombosis, malignant hematology, hematopoietic stem cell transplant and solid tumor oncology.

The Division of Hematology/Oncology provides both inpatient and outpatient services on a daily basis.  A dedicated inpatient unit serves the specialized needs of the hematology/oncology population.  Consultative services in hematology and medical oncology are provided to other inpatient services 7 days per week by our faculty and fellows.

Housed in the new Emily Couric Cancer Center, which opened in April, 2011, the University of Virginia's Cancer Center is a National Cancer Institute (NCI) designated Cancer Center.  Our new hematopoietic stem cell transplant unit will begin providing transplant care in early 2012.
