Holy Redeemer Health System's Cancer Program

The Charles A. and Betty Bott Cancer Center at Holy Redeemer

The Charles A. and Betty Bott Cancer Center at Holy Redeemer offers high-quality, coordinated cancer services encompassing prevention, education, diagnosis, treatment, emotional and spiritual support, home care and hospice.

Our surgeons, medical oncologists, specialized oncology nurses, and dedicated nurse navigators, working together with radiation oncologists from Penn Medicine's Department of Radiation Oncology, create a coordinated, comprehensive team to address patient and family needs. In addition, our clinical trials program provides access to various oncology-related cooperative group trials as well as other select National Institute of Health-supported clinical trials developed by Penn researchers.

The Bott Cancer Center staff also participates in ongoing education efforts including weekly breast cancer and twice monthly site-specific tumor conferences. In these conferences, a multidisciplinary team of physicians and other oncology support staff discuss recommended treatment approaches for each specific case.

We also offer patient and community education programs, bi-annual screenings and early detection programs for breast, and annual skin and prostate screenings. Breast cancer and bereavement support groups are offered as well as ongoing programs that assist in educating patients about cancer treatment and symptom management.

As the first full-time PET (Positron Emission Tomography) program in the area, we combine the expertise of the Bott Cancer Center with that of Integral PET Associates, LLC, a national leader in operating PET centers.

Further technological advances in this diagnostic test allow Holy Redeemer to offer PET fusion, a combination of the PET scan and CT scan that enables health care providers to pinpoint cancer and improve the precision of diagnosis and treatment options.

Radiation Oncology treatment planning and delivery is performed with the latest technology including both Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) and Image Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT).

Holy Redeemer has been designated as an accredited cancer program with commendation by the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer since 2004. We are also accredited by the American College of Radiology for Digital Mammography, Stereostatic and Ultrasound Breast Biopsies, and Obstetrical and Gynecological Ultrasounds.
