Philadelphia blocks Fox Chase Cancer Center's use of park
Fox Chase Cancer Center cannot expand into neighboring Burholme Park because Pennsylvania law protects "every square foot" of the park, a judge has ruled. Judge John W. Herron decided that Fox Chase cannot use 19.4 acres of the 65-acre city park in a long-term lease to expand its campus. Fox Chase said it urgently needed a new hospital to keep pace with cancer care, research, and the burgeoning increase in patients, but it has said it would look elsewhere if the city said no. It is considering a second campus in Delaware.
