Hematology and Oncology fellows at the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center see patients and conduct research primarily in four buildings on the East Baltimore campus, conveniently located just across the street from each other. It’s just a five-minute walk from bench to bedside.
The Skip Viragh Outpatient Cancer Building
Solid tumor outpatients are managed at The Skip Viragh Outpatient Cancer Building, a 184,000-square foot facility which opened in 2018. The building is home to 38 exam rooms, 38 infusion rooms and a wide range of services including a retail pharmacy, phlebotomy labs, imaging, a breast health innovation center, physical medicine and rehabilitation space and an image recovery center featuring skin care, makeup and head coverings.
The Harry and Jeannette Weinberg Building
Hematology outpatients and all inpatients are treated at The Harry and Jeannette Weinberg Building, a 350,000-square foot facility which opened in 1999. The building includes 16 operating suites, a post-anesthesia care unit, 62 medical oncology beds, 72 surgical beds, 20 intensive and immediate-care beds, radiation oncology and anesthesiology.
Most labs and research offices, as well as the fellowship offices, are located in the two Cancer Research Buildings on campus. They are:
- The Bunting Blaustein Cancer Research Building(CRB I), a 122,000-square foot facility that includes working space for over 400 researchers and staff. Completed in 2000, the building is home to research programs focused on cancer biology, immunology and hematopoiesis, urological oncology, gastrointestinal cancer, solid tumor research, experimental therapeutics, cancer prevention and control, hematologic malignancies and pediatric oncology.
- The Koch Cancer Research Building(CRB II), a 267,000-square foot facility with 10 stories of office space that connects to the Bunting Blaustein building through a walkway and high-tech auditorium. Completed in 2006, the site houses research programs in prostate cancer, brain cancer, pancreas cancer, skin cancer, lung cancer head and neck cancers.
Johns Hopkins oncology specialists also see patients at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, a former community hospital acquired by Johns Hopkins in 1984 and located about four miles east of the main campus. Some patients with lung, esophageal and breast cancers are treated on the Johns Hopkins Bayview campus, which features a lung cancer center of excellence and a dedicated breast center. Cancer services offered at Bayview include laparoscopic and robot-assisted surgeries, medical oncology treatments such as chemotherapy and immunotherapy, and radiation oncology.
