Asplundh Cancer Pavilion
Abington – Jefferson Health and the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center – Jefferson Health have reimagined cancer care with the opening of an 86,000-square-foot outpatient center offering a comprehensive continuum of leading-edge outpatient care, clinical research and support services in one modern facility--the Asplundh Cancer Pavilion – on July 2.
The vast spectrum of cancer care provided at the Asplundh Cancer Pavilion will include everything needed to outscience cancer, including multi-disciplinary clinics, surgical consultations, a chemotherapy/infusion suite, radiation therapy, clinical research, symptom support, and a dedicated oncology pharmacy, all within a peaceful and serene healing environment. Patients interested in clinical trials will now be afforded the option of participating in Phase I clinical trials, in addition to Phase II and III trials previously offered by Abington.
Comprehensive Personalized Care
With our personalized approach to medicine, we design a treatment program specifically for each patient. Through Abington’s integration with the renowned NCI-designated Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center – Jefferson Health (one of only 70 NCI-designated cancer centers in the country), specialists – such as head and neck cancer surgeons – will travel from Center City to meet with patients and families close to home and with conveniences like free parking. To date, 15 of the 55 specialty physicians who will be seeing patients at the Pavilion are from the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center in Center City.
Conveniently located just off the Pennsylvania Turnpike’s Willow Grove interchange, the LEED-certified building also features meeting space for cancer support groups, healing gardens, a café, as well as an Image Recovery Center offering breast prostheses, head coverings and wigs, lymphedema treatments, massages, skincare, and manicures and pedicures safe for cancer patients.
Support Services Onsite
Other support services available to patients include nurse navigators to help coordinate cancer treatment and provide support, nutrition counseling, financial counseling, social work, a cancer risk assessment program and more.
Patient Friendly Environment
Everything a cancer patient might need is available under one roof at the Asplundh Cancer Pavilion, in an environment that is calming, in a building that has been designed to be patient-friendly and to bring the outside in.

The building’s total project costs were $80 million; $50 million of those costs were contributed by 5,000 generous gifts raised by the community. The lead gift was made by the children of the late Carl and Emilie Asplundh, who honored their parents by naming the building.
