As the only healthcare system in Camden, Burlington and Gloucester counties to currently be a member of the Penn Cancer Network, Kennedy collaborates with Penn's Abramson Cancer Center to offer a full range of quality, comprehensive services for cancer prevention, early detection, diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation, support and follow-up. Our dedicated team of board-certified surgical oncologists, medical oncologists, pathologists, oncology-certified nurses and cancer support staff collaborate to meet the needs of cancer patients and their families.
In addition to Kennedy's participation in the Penn Cancer Network, professional services for patients receiving radiation therapy at the Kennedy Cancer Center on our Washington Township campus are provided by Penn's Department of Radiation Oncology. Physicians practicing at this facility are board-certified in radiation oncology and are faculty of the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine.
