Fox Chase Crozer-Keystone Cancer Partnership
Unique collaboration focusing on the ‘whole patient’
Representing the combined strengths and expertise of the region’s leading cancer care facilities, the Fox Chase Crozer-Keystone Cancer Partnership enables Crozer-Keystone and Fox Chase Cancer Center physicians and hospitals to collaborate on a range of clinical and research initiatives, giving patients broader access to new clinical trials and programs related to cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment.
Patient care & community health
The Crozer-Keystone Health System and Fox Chase share a philosophy about cancer care, focusing on the “whole patient,” recognizing the emotional and physical consequences of cancer.
The two facilities also share a commitment to community health, which both demonstrate by providing a range of free cancer screenings and education programs.
Crozer-Keystone and Fox Chase physicians work together in clinical research and apply for grants for the study of treatment outcomes, prevention, and education efforts, as well as cancer-related public health issues. They also collaborate on difficult cases and attend continuing education programs together.
Crozer-Keystone Health System patients benefit from this partnership with access to more than 100 cancer clinical trials approved by Fox Chase Cancer Center and the National Cancer Institute.
