Learn More about this Cancer Center

The Temple University Hospital started as a three-story house on North Broad Street, directed by Dr. Russell Conwell who was named the president of the care facility. On January 18, 1892, the house was purchased and refurbished to serve as a hospital. With 20 hospital beds, the facility was open to accommodate patients from all walks of life. All services were free of charge in order to accommodate individuals who were unable to afford payment. Over a year later, the hospital is now well-known for its cancer care.

Temple University Hospital offers treatment for mesothelioma cancer at their Fox Chase Cancer Center. Their medical team uses a multidisciplinary approach to give patients a full range of treatment options to choose from.

Fox Chase Cancer Center strives to treat mesothelioma patients with techniques as least invasive as possible, combining surgeries with chemotherapy and radiation therapy. If patients do require invasive surgery, Fox Chase has experience performing radical procedures. They also practice systemic therapies like immunotherapy, alongside interventional pulmonology for patients with pleural mesothelioma.

If patients are interested in clinical trials, there are mesothelioma clinical trials offered at Fox Chase Cancer Center. Some of their experimental treatments are solely offered at their cancer center, as they pioneer the latest mesothelioma treatment options.

Temple University Hospital also offers Nurse Navigators. Nurse Navigators help patients understand their diagnosis, test results and treatment options, while answering any questions that they might have before and during their treatment journey. For mesothelioma survivors, there are additional resources available, including nutrition counseling, pastoral care, physical medicine and rehabilitation, social work, speech pathology, support groups, stress management and wigs.
