Philadelphia mayor brokers deal to allow Fox Chase expansion

Philadelphia Inquirer, February 1, 2008
Fox Chase Cancer Center will proceed with a planned $800 million expansion project after Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter brokered a deal between the hospital and a city council member. Fox Chase will be allowed to build on 19 acres in Burholme Park, and in exchange the center will contribute $4 million to the city's capital program to be earmarked for projects. A spokesperson for Fox Chase said that the hospital was optimistic that the expansion project "will move forward on a pretty rapid timetable."
