This chair was established in 2001 to honor Paul J. Grotzinger, MD, Chief of Surgery at the American Oncologic Hospital from 1960 to 1974. When the hospital and the Institute for Cancer Research became Fox Chase Cancer Center in 1974, Grotzinger was instrumental in establishing the center's clinical program and became Chief of Surgery. He also served as medical director at Fox Chase until 1982 and as vice president for medical affairs from 1975 to 1986. This endowment was established with a bequest from Fox Chase patient G. Wilbur Raab and gifts from Dr. Grotzinger's family and friends to support an outstanding leader in the field of surgical oncology who represents the highest standards of excellence.
