Now More Than Ever, Where You Start Matters

During the COVID-19 pandemic, it is important for individuals with a cancer diagnosis to have the option to begin treatment safely and be tested for the virus that causes COVID-19 before doing so.

When and where patients first seek treatment can make a big difference in their outcomes, and studies show patients who begin their treatment at a hospital that specializes in cancer (like Fox Chase) have a better chance at survival.* In addition to better outcomes, patients choose Fox Chase for our advanced treatments, highly experienced teams, and reputation for bold discoveries in cancer care and innovation.

During this worldwide crisis, Fox Chase is taking every precaution to keep our patients and their families safe while offering the same world-class care that we are known for.

COVID-19 Testing at Fox Chase

We have developed the ability to quickly test for the virus that causes COVID-19 and are testing all patients prior to surgery or admission, as well as before other treatments when clinically appropriate.

Additional Steps We Are Taking to Keep Our Patients Safe

Fox Chase is determined to keep COVID-19 out of our center.

To do so, we:

  • Transfer all patients diagnosed with or suspected of having COVID-19 to our neighboring healthcare center, Temple University Hospital-Jeanes Campus, where they will be cared for and still closely monitored by Fox Chase physicians
  • Have reduced the number of individuals on-site by restricting visitors and non-essential staff members
  • Screen all individuals entering Fox Chase for symptoms and transfer those showing symptoms to Temple University Hospital – Jeanes Campus for further care
  • Provide all employees and patients face masks for the duration of their time in our facilities

Fox Chase is also offering new and existing patients telehealth appointment options when appropriate.
