Benefits of Penn Medicine
An innovative partnership
As a member of Penn Medicine, our patients receive the benefits of the collaborative efforts of experts at the Ann B. Barshinger Cancer Center and the Abramson Cancer Center--one of the nation’s foremost leaders in cancer research, patient care, and education.
Physicians and highly skilled oncology teams bring you leading-edge prevention, detection, treatment and survivorship programs. Medical oncologists and surgeons have been pioneers in treating breast, lung, prostate and gynecologic cancers. Radiation oncologists lead the way in using state-of-the-art technology to more precisely target, and destroy cancer.
Bridging community and subspecialty cancer care
The Ann B. Barshinger Cancer Institute is built on a National Cancer Institute model for a community cancer center, which recognizes that most cancer treatment will remain local. As part of Penn Medicine, even greater expertise is available in Lancaster, along with a seamless transition to services in Philadelphia.
Along with clinical trials at the Ann B. Barshinger Cancer Center, Penn's extensive clinical trials program offers Phase II and Phase III national trials. These trials evaluate the safety and effectiveness of drugs and compare new treatments with current standards. Your physician can explain the risks and benefits of research participation and identify any trials that might be a good fit for you.
