Located on land contributed by Fox Chase Cancer Center, the AstraZeneca Hope Lodge provides a quiet, convenient temporary residence. The Lodge offers kitchens, free laundry facilities, and free transportation to treatment centers.
To stay at the Hope Lodge, you must be referred by your Philadelphia area physician or health care professional. The Hope Lodge staff will coordinate with your health care professional to put your name on our waiting list. It is advisable to initiate the referral process well in advance of the first date of treatment, as patients are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
The AstraZeneca Hope Lodge is available for adults receiving outpatient cancer treatment. In order to qualify, patients must be 40 miles, or more, away from Fox Chase Cancer Center, patients must have a cancer diagnosis, and the patient must be accompanied by one person over the age of 18. Preference will be given to those who require a three-day or longer stay in that area for their treatment. Patients must be able to care for themselves, and are allowed one adult guest to stay.
