Research & Training

One of the Nation’s First Cancer Hospitals

On October 8, 1904, a group of Philadelphia physicians and business professionals established the American Oncologic Hospital, one of the country’s first hospitals devoted exclusively to cancer. This laid the foundation for Fox Chase Cancer Center.
