the pharmacy at the Yawkey Center for Cancer Care 

The Dana-Farber pharmacy fills prescriptions for all pediatric and adult patients. Our pharmacists are an extension of the patient care team and work closely with your physicians to provide seamless, convenient, safe care.

Dana-Farber pharmacists have online access to patients’ medical records, doctors’ notes, and up-to-date laboratory results – information that generally isn’t available to retail pharmacists.

We stock all medications prescribed by Dana-Farber physicians and can prepare them quickly. Local pharmacies don’t always carry newer drugs, which means patients have to wait one or two days before starting treatment.


Yawkey Center for Cancer Care, Floor 2


Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. – 6 p.m.
