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 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.
Message from Our Campaign Chair
Bruce A. Goodman
Today’s cancer patients benefit from extraordinary innovations in treatment and technology. The percentage of people surviving their cancer has risen dramatically in recent decades, and some 90 percent of all cancer care is now provided in an outpatient setting.
Abington Hospital is at the forefront of these dramatic advances in care with our plans for a comprehensive new outpatient cancer-care facility, the Asplundh Cancer Pavilion. Home to the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center at Abington, the new Pavilion will be an exceptional resource for our community.
When Abington Health Foundation launched our “Reimagine Cancer Care” fundraising campaign, we set an ambitious goal of $35 million to help Abington meet the $80 million cost of building and equipping this new cancer center. Our community’s response has been wonderful, and as excitement builds and our vision evolves, we have decided to extend the campaign another year and raise our goal to $45 million.
Thanks to the generosity of friends like you, the new Asplundh Cancer Pavilion is rapidly taking shape on our Willow Grove campus. When it opens next year, it will bring together a unique combination of advanced services, leading-edge technologies, ground-breaking research, and the highest level of skilled and experienced caregivers in one beautiful outpatient setting.
Your support is making this vision a reality. On behalf of everyone here, thank you for helping us Reimagine Cancer Care.
