Philadelphia-based Fox Chase Cancer Center loses appeal to use neighboring park

Philadelphia Inquirer, December 17, 2009
Philadelphia-based Fox Chase Cancer Center lost its appeal to use 19.4 acres of neighboring Burholme Park for a $1 billion expansion of its hospital. Commonwealth Court upheld a ruling last December that Fox Chase is not entitled to lease a portion of the 65-acre public park. Fox Chase says it urgently needs to expand to keep pace with cancer care, research, and the burgeoning increase in patients, but it has said it will look elsewhere if the city said no to expanding into the park.
