Temple University Health System Now Includes Fox Chase Cancer Center

As of July 1, 2012, Fox Chase Cancer Center has become part of Temple University Health System, one of Philadelphia's leading academic health centers, providing access to quality care through its hospitals and multi-specialty satellite facilities while supporting excellence and innovation in education and research.

"We are pleased to welcome Fox Chase Cancer Center into Temple's healthcare enterprise," said Larry R. Kaiser, MD, FACS, Senior Executive Vice President of Health Sciences for Temple University, President & CEO of Temple University Health System, and Dean of Temple University School of Medicine. "The addition of Fox Chase Cancer Center – one of only 41 National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer centers in the U.S. – solidifies Temple's position as a leader in cancer care and translational research. It also sets the stage for exciting and numerous opportunities to grow and enhance cancer-related patient care, research and educational programs."

"Fox Chase Cancer Center is committed to serving as one of the nation's top comprehensive cancer centers, delivering world-class care to our patients and remaining at the forefront of scientific discovery," said Michael V. Seiden, MD, PhD, President & CEO of Fox Chase Cancer Center. "Now, as a member of Temple University Health System, we are in a stronger position than ever before to meet the needs of current and future cancer patients."

Six months ago, on December 15, 2011, Temple University Health System and Fox Chase Cancer Center signed an affiliation agreement for TUHS to acquire Fox Chase Cancer Center.

The newly official relationship between Temple University Health System and Fox Chase Cancer Center also promotes collaborative synergies between and among the physician-scientists at Temple University School of Medicine and Fox Chase Cancer Center – which will accelerate the pace of further discovery and development of the most effective approaches to cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment. The collaboration between these two highly regarded institutions will enhance their ability to recruit and retain the nation's best researchers and clinicians, which in turn will help meet the healthcare needs of a growing patient base.

As an affiliate of Temple University Health System, Fox Chase Cancer Center will significantly expand its outpatient and surgical-care services – both within its existing facilities and through the use of leased space in neighboring Jeanes Hospital, an affiliate of Temple University Health System since 1996.
