Acute Leukemia Hotline

If you have a patient with symptoms that could be acute leukemia, you need to act fast. We can help.

Call us

Please call 833-353-1390 anytime acute leukemia is a concern, day or night.

We offer our 24/7 hotline to provide consultations, facilitate transfer, and assist physicians in helping their patients get specialty care sooner.
