Rising 14 stories above Brookline Avenue, the Yawkey Center for Cancer Care embodies one of the hallmarks of Dana-Farber: an unwavering commitment to innovation and discovery, and compassionate care.
Created with guidance from many of our patients and families, it was built to advance clinical care, optimize patient safety, enhance the patient experience, and provide a welcome and nurturing environment.
The Yawkey Center adds 275,000 square feet of clinical and support space and is designed to accommodate more than 100 exam rooms, more than 150 infusion spaces, and 20 consultation rooms.
The center’s design was built to foster collaboration between researchers and clinicians; treatment centers are connected by bridges to their related research laboratories in the Richard A. and Susan F. Smith Research Laboratories Building. The Yawkey Center is home to an expanded Clinical Research Center where patients have access to a state-of-the-art facility dedicated solely to conducting novel anti-cancer drug trials.
The building is also connected to other Dana-Farber buildings, and to our clinical partners, Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Boston Children’s Hospital – providing patients with seamless care coordination.
Named to honor the late Tom and Jean Yawkey in thanks to their foundation’s leadership support, the center signifies Dana-Farber’s personalized and compassionate cancer care that is guided by laboratory research, enhanced by sophisticated technology, and provided with concern for each patient’s emotional well-being.
