About

Since 1982, our mission to provide coordinated care for children born with rare diseases or genetic disorders has not wavered. In addition to funding The Feingold Center located at Boston Children’s Hospital, we also fund programs and services that assist our patients and their families. The Feingold Center, led by Dr. Catherine B. Nowak, named a “Top Doctor” by Boston Magazine multiple times, continues Dr. Feingold’s focus on the patient and their family in conjunction with her team to provide not only the best that medical science has to offer, but also coordinated care to support the entire family.

What makes the Feingold Center different?

Our physicians and genetic counselors do not have the same time constraints that have become the standard for medical care today. Their goal is to provide a diagnosis to the family and then coordinate the child’s ongoing medical care through adulthood. The Feingold Center team will also advocate for  families with their school and insurance carrier, as well as ensure that other family members receive the support that they need due to the increased demands placed upon the entire family. The Feingold Center coordinates the care for about 350 individual patients each year resulting in an average of 700 patient visits. We are able to accomplish this via six locations in Massachusetts. Our goal is to increase the number of patient coordinators so that we can serve more patients throughout New England and beyond.

To support Dr. Murray Feingold’s legacy and the future of coordinated care, please make a donation to The Genesis Foundation for Children.

From our family to yours, thank you.
