The Kimmel Cancer Center at Jefferson

Cancer is the number one cause of death in the United States today. For patients and their families, a cure can’t come soon enough.

The Kimmel Cancer Center at Jefferson shares this sense of urgency. Our team of physicians and scientists continues to lead the nation in cancer treatment and research. Their mission: increase the survival rate and quality of life for cancer patients by translating laboratory discoveries into new strategies to prevent, diagnose, monitor, and cure human cancer.

Jefferson Breast Care Center

Jefferson’s reputation as a leader in breast cancer treatment and research has grown quickly over the past 30 years. So has the demand for Jefferson’s services. To meet the needs of the region, we are building a Breast Care Center that will be as state-of-the-art as the care we provide.

The new facility will centralize all our breast care services, from screening and diagnosis to treatment and follow-up. The staff will give patients guidance and support at every step.
