    Watch videos about Dana-Farber's Yawkey Center for Cancer Care

    These three videos, produced with WCVB Channel 5 and hosted by Peter Mehegan, showcase the clinical areas, common spaces, and resources for cancer patients and their families in the Yawkey Center for Cancer Care.

    The Yawkey Center for Cancer Care: An ideal place of healing

    Peter Mehegan provides an overview of the Yawkey Center, introducing some of the features that will offer adult cancer patients more access to the Institute's innovative care. Dana-Farber CEO Edward Benz Jr., MD, and Craig Bunnell, MD, MPH, Chief Medical Officer, comment on the building.

    Improving the patient experience

    The Yawkey Center was designed to help improve the patient experience — through warm, comfortable spaces, and by facilitating the rapid translation of clinical research to clinical care. Peter Mehegan highlights some of the benefits for patients, including the role of technology in streamlining everything from appointment scheduling to prescription pick-up at the pharmacy.

    The healing power of nature and art

    From the tranquil healing garden and the chapel, which is open 24 hours a day, to the hundreds of original works of art, including paintings, photographs, and sculptures, patients and families can find many sources of peace and strength at the Yawkey Center for Cancer Care.
