As if we didn't already have enough reasons to love Patrick Dempsey, he's actually taking his goodness up a notch. Patrick, 42, (aka Dr. McDreamy) has announced that The Patrick Dempsey Center for Cancer Hope & Healing will open March 31 in his hometown of Maine.

The new center will provide education and support programs for patients and families dealing with cancer. The hunky Grey's Anatomy actor and father of three wanted to give back to the very same hospital that helped his mother send her ovarian cancer into remission. Don't you just love this guy?
