Disability Services for Pediatric Patients

Dana-Farber / Children's Hospital Cancer Center logo

Both Dana-Farber and Children’s Hospital are accessible to people with disabilities, and comply with the provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

All buildings are wheelchair accessible, and parking assistance is available if special services are needed. There are wheelchairs at the main entrance of both buildings, and security staff can provide personal assistance.

Cancer educational materials are available in large print and audiotape formats.

Children’s Hospital patients are eligible to use THE RIDE, an MBTA service that provides transportation for people with physical or mental disabilities that prevent them from using public transportation.

THE RIDE is operated in compliance with the federal Americans with Disabilities Act and is a shared-ride service, which means you will be traveling with other people. Lift-equipped vans are used to serve persons with disabilities, including those who use wheelchairs and scooters.

If you have questions about accessibility, please contact the ADA coordinator at the appropriate hospital.
