U.S. News & World Report's "Honor Roll" of best hospitals in the nation ranks the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania (HUP) as best in the Philadelphia region for cancer care, and one of the top hospitals nationwide.

As the nation's first medical school and first university teaching hospital, these rankings reflect Penn Medicine's centuries-long commitment to advancing the science of cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment through basic and clinical research. Penn Medicine also offers more options to diagnose and treat cancer and blood disorders than anywhere else in the Philadelphia region.

Where You Turn First Matters Most

HUP's reputation as a world leader in medical research and clinical care attracts the highest quality medical specialists from around the world.

Penn's multidisciplinary approach to care is a unique model that affords every patient the opportunity to benefit from a highly collaborative care environment.

Penn Medicine's Hematology/Oncology division offers highly integrated care for patients with benign and malignant disorders of the blood and lymphatic organs as well as for patients with most types of solid tumor malignancies.

Penn Hematology/Oncology has a multidisciplinary program that evaluates and manages the full range of blood disorders. This includes the Penn Comprehensive Hemophilia Program, which provides evaluation and treatment for patients with inherited and acquired bleeding disorders and is supported by a team of physicians, nurses, physical therapist and social worker. Patients and their families are seen by practitioners in this Program at HUP in the Dulles Building, with the practice located on 3 Dulles.

Inpatient cancer care at HUP is provided in a 100 bed oncology unit located primarily in the Rhoades Building. This specialty unit provides comprehensive, patient and family centric care with outstanding physicians and nurses working as a team, ensuring the highest quality and best possible outcomes.

Outpatient cancer care is provided in the Perelman Center for Advanced Medicine. With 72 exam rooms and 82 private chemotherapy infusion bays, this state of the art facility also includes many patient support services including the Kaplan Educational Center and the Integrative Medicine Program.

The Only Option is Every Option

Patients at Penn Medicine have access to research that is happening right now, and are able to take advantage of cutting-edge discoveries in medicine through participation in clinical trials.

Penn's Abramson Cancer Center, an NCI-designated comprehensive cancer center, oversees one of the largest clinical trials programs in the country, with more than 200 trials available at any time.

Nationally Recognized for Cancer Research

Since 1765 when it first opened its doors, Penn Medicine has been dedicated to the training of physicians and the discovery and implementation of new medical knowledge.

Today, that dedication remains strong. In 2010, the National Cancer Institute (NCI) named the Abramson Cancer Center an "exceptional" comprehensive cancer center and noted its dedication to creating new models for cancer treatment.
