Welcome to The Skip Viragh Outpatient Cancer Building

The Johns Hopkins Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer's Skip Viragh Outpatient Cancer building brings all the services for your cancer care and treatment together in one place.

The Skip Viragh outpatient cancer clinic represents the future of cancer medicine, a clinical enterprise that is second to none and the culmination of more than five years of planning. More than 200 patients each day  will visit the building in a system that honors the spirit, dedication and vision of Skip Viragh who sought to ensure that all cancer patients had access to the best of care. With an increasing amount of cancer care provided in the outpatient setting, and expected to grow over the next decade, this building is the new hub of our cancer services and clinical research and is the embodiment of team science and precision medicine, removing all barriers to attacking cancer and bringing the very best treatment plan and supportive care to each patient.  Learn more about the comprehensive range of outpatient services.
