Treating Your Cancer, Keeping You Safe

  • Now more than ever, you have us

    In these challenging times, we know you may worry about coming to Dana-Farber for an appointment. That's why we want you to know what we're doing to keep you safe.

    You entrust us with your care, and we are doing everything possible to provide a safe environment of care. When you come to Dana-Farber, you'll notice a number of changes:

  • Keeping you safe - elevator sign

    Physical distancing is in place throughout our facility — in elevators, waiting areas, check-in desks, and many other places.

  • Keeping you safe - staff member cleaning furniture

    We frequently disinfect all common areas — with deep cleanings of exam rooms, seating areas, restrooms, infusion clinics, dining pavilion, and more.

  • Keeping you safe - hand sanitizer dispenser

    More sanitizing stations have been installed throughout the facility for hand cleaning.

  • Keeping you safe - collage of employees wearing masks

    Face masks are required for all staff and patients.

  • Keeping you safe - waiting area with chairs spread apart

    Fewer people are allowed onsite to create more space and reduce congestion.

  • Keeping you safe - clinic area 2

    Wait times are typically very low, so patients don't need to spend much time in common areas.

  • Keeping you safe - plexiglass in lobby

    Plexiglass barriers have been installed at check-in desks to help prevent exposure.

  • Keeping you safe - patient screening

    We'll ask you multiple times before an appointment whether you may have been exposed to COVID-19 or have had any symptoms.

  • Keeping you safe - employee screening sign

    All onsite staff are screened every day for COVID-19 symptoms.

  • Keeping you safe - general screening

    All other persons entering Dana-Farber are screened for COVID-19 symptoms.

  • Thank you for entrusting your care to us. We are here for you, and now more than ever, you have us.
