An important behind-the-scenes component of the cancer program is the tumor registry, which follows each child’s progress and gathers information about diagnosed cancers. Not only does that confidential information contribute directly to treatment, but it also furnishes data for cancer research projects at the state and national level. Also, Mercy St. Vincent Children's Hospital coordinates BCMH services for oncology patients.
