The BI-LO Charities Children’s Cancer Center is made up of a 14-bed inpatient unit and outpatient unit with clinical, research and educational components. The center provides comprehensive cancer services to infants, children and young adults living in upstate South Carolina, western North Carolina and northern Georgia. As a member of the international Children’s Oncology Group (COG), the center provides patients with access to the latest clinical trials for all childhood cancers. The center is also currently conducting innovative pediatric cancer research within the GHS Oncology Research Institute.
Programs supported by the BI-LO Charities gift include Child Life, chaplaincy, social work and psychological services, support groups and the center’s innovative school re-entry program. These programs combine to create the “Whole Child” concept, which enhances the basic medical services provided by the center.
In 2007, BI-LO® Charities gave $2.5 million to create and endow the BI-LO® Charities Children's Cancer Center located within Children's Hospital. The center has board-certified pediatric hematology/oncology physicians, specialty-trained inpatient and outpatient nurses, a Child Life specialist, a psychologist, a social worker and a chaplain who all work together to address the needs of children and families faced with a diagnosis of pediatric cancer.
