The Pediatric Oncohematology Ward is located on the fifth floor of the Regina Margherita Children’s Hospital and covers an area of ​​about 900 square meters. Located on the same floor as the nearby "Day Hospital" and "Stem Cell Transplant Centre" wards to create a synergistic and homogeneous diagnostic-therapeutic path for the patient, through an aesthetic and at the same time functional continuity between the three departments.

On one side there are the 16 hospital rooms, with their respective bathrooms, and on the other side the services consisting of medical rooms, a secretarial office, tea room, bathrooms and storage rooms. At the end of the corridor, a large games room has been redesigned as a large open-space area for play and leisure, with spaces and furnishings suitable for young patients.

Drawing inspiration from nature, the rooms have been characterized by illustrations of small insects, large butterflies and humans that move together with the natural elements forming a whole.
