    Dana-Farber's Jimmy Fund Clinic is one of the world's premier centers for pediatric cancer treatment and research. It encourages hope for children with cancer and their families. Designed specifically for the comfort and convenience of pediatric cancer patients and their families, the Jimmy Fund Clinic follows the "family-centered care" philosophy of Institute founder Dr. Sidney Farber, assuring that a patient's psychological, family, and spiritual needs are met as well their medical needs.

    On January 12, 2015, a two-year renovation of the Jimmy Fund Clinic was completed. All outpatient services that were 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.
