Fox Chase Cancer Center Publishes Clinical Outcomes for Patient Use
Date:1/31/2011

ompared to individuals treated for the major cancers in community hospitals," Seiden said. "We have always believed that our singular focus on understanding, preventing, and treating cancer leads to a higher overall standard of care, and the figures, on the whole, bear that out."

One of the main reasons for the distinction, Seiden says, lies in Fox Chase's patient volume and its exclusive focus on cancer.  Fox Chase, one of only a few dozen National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers in the country, treats more than 32,000 oncology patients a year, including 7,600 new patients, and has active research and clinical trials programs that benefit patients from across the region. Through its Partners program with community-based hospitals in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, Fox Chase promotes the timely translation of research findings to ensure patients have access to the latest advances in cancer care and treatment.

"We know that our patients aren't just numbers, and we show it in the personal care that our oncologists and nursing staff deliver every day," said Dr. Seiden.  "But we believe that where patients first seek care can greatly influence their outcomes, and you can see some of those differences when comparing the outcomes of an institution such as Fox Chase, which has a sole focus on cancer care, informed by in-house research and clinical experience."

The Fox Chase commissioned survey from the fall of 2010, which included 406 non-diagnosed adults, was conducted by Kesselman Research and Strategic Planning.  The survey found that the most important factors when choosing a hospital for cancer care included high success rates, availability of the latest advances in cancer treatment, ability to handle the most complex cases, and individualized tailored targeted treatments.
