In brief: The vast majority...

Work at tertiary care medical centers and located in larger cities.
There are some who work in smaller practices, but maintain a close affiliation with larger medical centers. This enables their patients to receive the highly specialized diagnostic, therapeutic and post-treatment surveillance services they need. When patients live far from their oncologist, local practioners help to provide care.

In brief: Depends on market

In larger metro markets children's hospital would be the most likely place but they can work out of private practices or adult hospitals as well.
In an ideal world a pediatric hospital affiliated with a cancer center would b the preferred place.
