Sophisticated cancer care: Right in your community

When you’re facing cancer, you want the very best care.

That’s what you’ll find at Mercy Philadelphia.

“The care here is equal to that at any major academic hospital,” says Lingyi Chen, MD, a medical oncologist at Mercy Philadelphia. “But our care is highly personal. You won’t be a number.”

We take pride in that compassion, as well as our state-of-the-art treatments. They include:

Image-guided radiation therapy. This lets doctors precisely target tumors while sparing healthy tissue, reducing side effects.

Less invasive surgeries. Our doctors can often remove tumors with just a few tiny incisions.

Targeted chemotherapy. Standard chemo attacks all the cells in your body. But this therapy only targets specific types of cancer cells. That may make treatment work better with fewer side effects.

Plus, at Mercy Philadelphia, you can count on:

An expert treatment plan. A team of cancer specialists will meet to map out the best care for you.

Clinical trials. Our patients often have access to research studies that test new cancer treatments.

“Every patient matters to us,” Dr. Chen says. “That is why we are committed to exceptional care.”
