Founded in 1903, Aria Health began as a small community hospital. Today, Aria Health is the leading and largest healthcare provider in Northeast Philadelphia and Lower Bucks County with three modern inpatient facilities and three outpatient sites. Aria Health began its comprehensive Cancer Program in 1992, offering patients a full range of high-quality oncology and support services. Board-certified surgeons and surgical oncologists, radiation oncologists and medical oncologists, radiologists, pathologists, pain management specialists, certified cancer nurses, a dedicated research nurse and social workers team together to treat both the physical and emotional sides of cancer in a comfortable setting.

Aria Health is a member of the Jefferson Kimmel Cancer Center Network. This pairing, benefits patients by providing access to nationally and internationally renowned medical specialists, the newest technology and the latest clinical research. Collaboratively, we can ensure that all patients are offered the best available treatments options.

Our newly renovated and upgraded radiation oncology department has the latest technology including Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT), prostate “seed” brachytherapy and a CT simulator right in the treatment area. All radiation oncologists are faculty members of the Jefferson Medical College of Thomas Jefferson University. They work with an experienced team of clinical support staff to customize each individual patient’s treatment.

The Cancer Center participates in many national clinical research studies. A dedicated research nurse meets and guides enrolled patients through the research process.

  • Multimodality Breast Center
