Fox Chase Receives Beautification Award from Cheltenham Township

PHILADELPHIA (Dec. 2007)—Fox Chase Cancer Center's newly renovated building at 604 Cottman Avenue, which houses the financial headquarters, received special recognition through Cheltenham Township. The Main Street Program of the township's Economic Development Task Force honored Fox Chase with its 2007 Beautification Award.

The Beautification Award is given annually. It recognizes a chosen business or property owner for the most improved exterior in the township. Fox Chase received the award for its work in improving the physical appearance of the former Dollar Store building on Cottman Avenue.

Fox Chase Cancer Center, part of the Temple University Health System, is one of the leading cancer research and treatment centers in the United States. Founded in 1904 in Philadelphia as one of the nation’s first cancer hospitals, Fox Chase was also among the first institutions to be designated a National Cancer Institute Comprehensive Cancer Center in 1974. Fox Chase researchers have won the highest awards in their fields, including two Nobel Prizes. Fox Chase physicians are also routinely recognized in national rankings, and the Center’s nursing program has received the Magnet recognition for excellence four consecutive times. Today, Fox Chase conducts a broad array of nationally competitive basic, translational, and clinical research, with special programs in cancer prevention, detection, survivorship, and community outreach.  For more information, call 1-888-FOX CHASE or (1-888-369-2427).
