    Jimmy Fund Clinic

    Our newly-renovated inpatient and outpatient care areas are designed specifically to meet the needs of children and teens and their families, while providing the highest level of care. Our main facilities are on the campuses of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Boston Children’s Hospital, located side by side in Boston, MA. All care areas are connected through well-signed hallways and indoor bridges.

    Get directions, campus maps and other resources to help you find your way to our main campus around our facilities.

    On January 12, 2015, we completed a two-year renovation of the Jimmy Fund Clinic. All outpatient services that had been provided on the 5th floor of Dana-Farber’s Yawkey Center for Cancer Care have moved back to the Jimmy Fund Clinic on the 3rd floor of the Dana building. For more information, read our FAQs about the Jimmy Fund Clinic move.

    On February 3, 2015, all outpatient services for the Bone Marrow Failure Program currently provided at Boston Children’s Hospital — including clinic visits currently provided on Fegan 6 and blood cell transfusions and other intravenous treatments provided in the Farley CAT/CR — also will move to the Jimmy Fund Clinic.

    Stem Cell Transplant Unit

    Our 14-bed stem cell transplant unit at Boston Children's Hospital is specially designed to protect children during treatment. This state-of-the-art unit meets the needs of children undergoing stem cell (bone marrow) transplant by minimizing their exposure to toxins and germs without curtailing their freedom to leave their room or interact with family and friends.

    Pharmacy

    Prescriptions can be filled at our conveniently located pharmacy. Dana-Farber/Boston Children’s pharmacists have online access to patient medical records, doctors’ notes, and up-to-date laboratory results—information that is not generally available to retail pharmacists. Our pharmacists answer drug and treatment related questions, teach patients and families about drug administration, promote patient safety, and use advanced technologies such as computerized order-entry systems. They also help develop clinical trials and monitor drug usage for safety and effectiveness. And, we carry newer drugs (most local pharmacies don’t), meaning there is no delay before starting treatment.

    Gift Shop

    The Friends’ Corner Gift Shop at Dana-Farber and the Trinkets and Treasures gift shop at Boston Children’s Hospital carry a wide selection of unique gifts and everyday items for patients, families and visitors, including hospital logo merchandise; greeting cards; stuffed animals; toys, games and puzzles; and children’s books and magazines.
