Abington – Jefferson Health is at the forefront of Reimagining Cancer Care with the creation of our new 86,000 square foot Asplundh Cancer Pavilion, scheduled to open in early 2018.

Please join us in realizing an inspiring vision for the future of cancer care with Abington Health Foundation’s launch of a capital campaign to help build, equip and staff the Asplundh Cancer Pavilion.

The success of the Reimagine Cancer Care campaign, being led by campaign chairman Bruce A. Goodman, will enable Abington to bring together:

  • an exceptional blend of talented people,
  • advanced technologies, pioneering therapies, leading-edge research, and
  • complementary care that embraces the whole patient – body, mind and spirit,
  • all in one location, in a remarkable new facility, on the campus of Abington Health Center – Willow Grove.

Abington is especially well-known for its outstanding cancer care. Each year 2,000 new cancer patients select Abington Hospital for diagnosis, treatment and ongoing care – making our program one of the busiest cancer centers in the region.

Abington’s new Asplundh Cancer Pavilion is a perfect example of how the merger between Abington and Jefferson is making both institutions “Better Together.” The Asplundh Cancer Pavilion will further enhance a combined entity that includes many of the region’s finest care facilities and its best and brightest clinicians, scientists, academicians and healthcare professionals. Patients will also benefit from the latest therapies and trials through our affiliation with Jefferson’s Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center, an NCI-designated Cancer Center.
