Posted date

Expansion furthers the Institute's commitment to deliver local care to cancer patients

Editor’s Note: This project was put on hold in 2020. The site is now scheduled to open in late summer 2022.

Dana-Farber Cancer Institute today announced it has signed an agreement to lease approximately 34,000 square feet of medical office space at Patriot Place in Foxborough to develop a Dana-Farber medical oncology and hematology outpatient hospital satellite facility.

Under the terms of the agreement, Dana-Farber will provide adult medical oncology and hematology services, such as exams, infusions, support services (e.g. nutrition and social work) and select clinical trials in this space.

"We are continually seeking ways to provide cancer patients with access to Dana-Farber's world-class physicians and medical professionals closer to their homes. We are thrilled to be developing a site at Patriot Place in Foxborough to better support patients in the area," said Craig A. Bunnell, MD, MPH, MBA, Chief Medical Officer, Dana-Farber.

"The addition of these medical services builds upon the world-renowned medical care provided at Patriot Place and furthers our commitment to providing local communities with access to world-class health care closer to home," said Brian Earley, Patriot Place general manager. "We are thrilled to welcome Dana-Farber and the best oncology services to Foxborough."

The Dana-Farber medical oncology and hematology hospital satellite at Patriot Place is expected to open to patients in the spring of 2020. When fully operational, approximately 40 new employment opportunities will be created to care for patients and operate the facility.

This new site joins Dana-Farber's existing hospital facilities and physician practices in delivering expert, compassionate cancer care throughout New England. Dana-Farber also recently announced that it signed a lease for 140,000 square feet in the Life Time Center in Chestnut Hill as an expansion of the Institute's Longwood campus, and subject to the approval of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, is anticipated to open by early 2020. Opening these new facilities will further expand access for patients to the best possible oncology services.
