Our Multidisciplinary Team Members and Their Roles


In many cases, treatment can mean caring for multiple problems, so we address all aspects of a child’s illness in one place. Our unique multidisciplinary approach has brought together the best individuals and practices throughout the hospital to provide complete care and heal the whole patient.

Every patient with sickle cell disease has a dedicated doctor, pediatric nurse and social worker, so parents and family members always know where to go with questions.

Our entire team of doctors, nurses, child life specialists, social workers, nutritionists, pain management specialists, therapists, and other clinical professionals help families understand their children’s diagnosis, treatments, and the care needed at home and throughout their life.

Together, we bring world-class medical and research expertise, as well as hope for a cure for blood disorders, to the Southwestern United States and beyond.
