Redefining Humanly Possible

Cancer treatments take time. Individuals can spend upwards of ten hours in a chair for infusion sessions. Understanding this burden, the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center (SKCC) at Torresdale is designed with a patient-centered approach, providing a comfortable, welcoming, and soothing environment for our patients as well as their caregivers. Features include a new dedicated entrance, warm and healing colors, semi-private bays, comfortable seating for patients and loved ones, and floor-to-ceiling windows to fill the space with natural light.

In addition to patient comfort, the center has expanded patient access to SKCC’s robust clinical trial program, ensuring that our patients receive the most advanced therapies available.

This state-of-the-art space is an anchor for the surrounding community, providing residents with the world-class cancer care they deserve—just minutes from home.
