We’ve also joined forces with the Fox Chase Cancer Center to create a powerful new alliance in the fight against cancer. Today, Temple Health is helping more patients in more places in the Delaware Valley than ever before. Wherever patients live, wherever they work and play, wherever they need us, we are there.

Fox Chase Cancer Center is one of only 41 NCI-designated comprehensive cancer centers in the U.S. Consistently ranked among the top cancer hospitals in the country, Fox Chase also has a tremendous research legacy: researchers here discovered the Philadelphia Chromosome, the hepatitis B virus, and ubiquitin (the latter two leading to Nobel Prizes). The new synergy of research and clinical care among Fox Chase Cancer Center, Temple University School of Medicine, and the Temple Cancer Center gives our patients the best possible chance in their fight against cancer. Led by Richard I. Fisher, MD, the cancer center remains at the forefront of state-of-the-art cancer research, prevention, detection, treatment, and survivorship in pursuit of its mission to prevail over cancer. Fox Chase offers the latest clinical trials and the most advanced aspects of precision medicine, including next-generation genetic sequencing. Fox Chase and Temple researchers also now jointly pursue several promising ideas for completely new cancer treatments. Current lines of basic and translational research are focused on epigenetics, cancer signaling, synthetic lethality, and personalized medicine. This powerful new alliance with Fox Chase is one more way Temple Health is creating more effective and forward-looking specialty care for all the regionâ€™s patients.
