Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Services

The St. Jude Tri-Cities Affiliate Clinic at Niswonger Children’s Hospital is a partnership among the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, ETSU and Niswonger Children’s Hospital.

The St. Jude Tri-Cities Affiliate was established in 1999, and is an outpatient clinic staffed by three pediatric hematology/oncology physicians, and a nurse practitioner, in addition to many other clinic support team members. 

We think of the St. Jude Affiliate program as a “Hospital without Walls.” The Tri-Cities Affiliate is part of the St. Jude mission to extend the protocol-structured treatment and research at St. Jude through clinical, research and academic partnerships with pediatric programs. 

The professionals at the St. Jude Tri-Cities Affiliate Clinic at Niswonger Children’s Hospital work in collaboration with the staff at St. Jude Research Children’s Hospital to deliver protocol-related care to hematology and oncology patients.  

The St. Jude Tri-Cities Affiliate Clinic at Niswonger Children’s Hospital is one of only seven clinics in the nation that are part of the St. Jude Domestic Affiliate Program. The clinic meets the rigorous care standards required by St. Jude, and is subject to annual audits that confirm our ongoing capability and commitment to quality.

The St. Jude Tri-Cities Affiliate receives more than 3,000 outpatient visits annually and follows more than 300 children with malignancies; they also treat many children with congenital bleeding disorders and a variety of other hematological problems.  The First Regional Hemophilia Program, a state sponsored program for congenital bleeding disorders, is housed in the St. Jude Tri-Cities Affiliate and has quarterly clinics for children and adults with hemophilia.  

The St. Jude Tri-Cities Affiliate Clinic operates inside Niswonger Children's Hospital, 400 N. State of Franklin Road, Johnson City, TN 37604.
