    Outpatient Care: Jimmy Fund Clinic

    Outpatient care for oncology patients is typically provided at the Jimmy Fund Clinic at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Recent Jimmy Fund Clinic renovations provide an expanded procedure suite and new infusion chairs that are fully adjustable for the comfort of each child. Learn more about our renovation. The clinic includes:

    • Kid-friendly treatment and procedure rooms
    • Private exam rooms
    • Fully-adjustable infusion chairs, each with their own television and bedside space for a parent
    • An independent pharmacy

    The Jimmy Fund Clinic is open 8am–5pm, Monday–Friday, and closed on the weekends.

    Outpatient care for hematology patients is provided on the 7th floor of Boston Children's Hospital and at satellite locations in Lexington, Peabody, Waltham and Weymouth.

    Inpatient Care: Boston Children's Hospital

    Most inpatient care is provided on the 6th floor at Boston Children’s Hospital. Our newly-expanded inpatient unit includes private rooms for patients and family members who may need to stay overnight. The new unit provides more spacious rooms and hallways, an outdoor garden and a new resource room. Neuro-oncology patients on the ninth floor can also take advantage of the new addition and garden. Our inpatient unit offers:

    • Accommodations for a parent, so children staying overnight never have to be alone
    • Family lounges, activity rooms, an outdoor garden available only to oncology and hematology patients and families, laundry facilities, and a special resource room filled with educational and fun activities
    • Kid-friendly treatment rooms designated for blood drawing, diagnostic imaging, surgery and other procedures
    • Kitchens with separate refrigerators to store patient and parent food

    Each patient room has a private wardrobe, storage space, and entertainment features, including a TV with a VCR or DVD player, PlayStation 2, and Internet access.

    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. Friends’ Corner is open Monday through Friday, 9am–5pm; Trinkets and Treasures is open Monday through Friday, 8am–8pm, and Saturday and Sunday, 10am–6pm.
