Kennedy Health’s Cancer Center is the newest member of the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Network at Jefferson. As a cancer center network member, resources will be available to the Kennedy Cancer Center and its patients, creating local access to medical expertise, second opinions and advanced research. Learn more about the partnership.
Effective July 1, Kennedy Health’s Cancer Center, located in Washington Township, NJ, will become a member of the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Network at Jefferson.
Kennedy Health’s Cancer Center provides a full array of diagnostic and treatment services including radiation oncology, medical oncology, diagnostic imaging and a comprehensive breast care program.
As a Network member, the Kennedy Cancer Center — part of the multi-hospital Kennedy Health system — will have access to research studies, medical education, cancer screenings and administrative resources at Jefferson’s Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center. In addition, Kennedy cancer patients will be able to take advantage of several programs unique to Jefferson, such as precision medicine services, telehealth and our Senior Adult Oncology Program. This in turn creates local access to medical expertise, second opinions and advanced research for patients.
“The Sidney Kimmel Cancer Network is pleased to partner with our colleagues at Kennedy Health,” said Leonard Gomella, MD, Clinical Director, Sidney Kimmel Cancer Network at Jefferson and Chairman of the Department of Urology at Thomas Jefferson University. “Our innovative cancer clinical trials will now be available to all members of the South Jersey communities Kennedy has served so well over the years.”
“This is a tremendously positive step forward for our healthcare organization,” said Joseph W. Devine, Kennedy President and CEO. “We are excited to become part of the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Network, as we are confident this partnership can only benefit our patients and the communities of southern New Jersey that we serve.”
Earlier this year, Kennedy Health announced its intentions to partner with Jefferson to become our South Jersey hub for services.
