Being miles away from home can add to the anxiety of a cancer diagnosis and ongoing treatments. That's why Fox Chase Cancer Center's Coventry House brings the comforts of home to out-of-town patients and families.
Comfortable, Affordable Housing
Located within walking distance of the Center, Coventry House offers seven fully furnished, one-bedroom apartments for Fox Chase patients and families. For rates less than the average hotel stay, each smoke-free unit features twin beds in the bedroom and a sofa bed in the living room, a full kitchen including microwave, air conditioning, a television and telephone service for local calls. The complex also includes coin-operated laundry facilities and free parking.
Coventry House offers an affordable and comfortable housing option for those planning an extended stay. Apartments are available on a first-come, first-served basis for a minimum of two nights. Patients staying at Coventry House must be ambulatory and able to care for themselves without assistance. Pets are not allowed.
Availability of Apartments
There is often a waiting list for apartments. The housing coordinator will confirm the availability of a unit one day before you arrive or help you make other arrangements until an apartment becomes available. You also will receive a list of local stores, pharmacies and restaurants conveniently reached by walking, driving or local bus service.
Donors Help Keep Costs Low
