Cancer Care

Cancer is a disease in which the body’s abnormal cells multiply at a higher than normal rate and spread to one or more parts of the body, sometimes causing the development of masses and tumors. Pottstown Hospital's cancer care facility combines cancer treatment technology with oncology specialists to deliver care and support to cancer patients and their families.

Pottstown Hospital is proud to be a Fox Chase Cancer Center Partner

Fox Chase Cancer Center Partners is a select group of community-based hospitals in Pennsylvania and New Jersey whose cancer programs are affiliated with Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia.
