Grand View Health and Penn Medicine have announced the expansion of their Penn Cancer Network relationship to include radiation oncology services at Grand View Hospital effective Jan. 25, 2021. Patients will continue to receive radiation oncology services at the Sellersville hospital under the direction of a radiation oncologist team from Penn Medicine.
Penn Radiation Oncology is a global leader in innovative technology, with one of the most comprehensive radiation oncology departments in the country, and home to the Roberts Proton Therapy Center.
“We partnered with the Penn Cancer Network nearly three years ago, and expanding our relationship to include radiation oncology is another opportunity to bring world-class care to our community,” says Jean Keeler, JD, President and Chief Executive Officer of Grand View Health. “We are united in our mission to deliver the highest quality care close to home through advanced protocols and standardization of treatment protocols.”
The Penn Cancer Network offers a system of care between Grand View Health and Penn Medicine. This means patients receiving care at Grand View Health have access to the latest diagnostic tests, treatments and supportive care, including Penn’s extensive clinical trials program. The relationship also makes it possible for providers at both Penn Medicine’s Abramson Cancer Center and Grand View Health to work together to evaluate patients and collaborate on treatment plans for patients.
“We look forward to this new expansion and bringing another level of coordination between the Abramson Cancer Center and Grand View Health — which are both committed to ensuring each patient receives the right care and treatment,” said James Metz, MD, chair of the department of Radiation Oncology, and associate director for Clinical Services and Programs at the Abramson Cancer Center.
