The Department Today

The Bodine Center for Cancer Treatment

The facilities of Jefferson’s Department of Radiation Oncology, known as the Bodine Center for Cancer Treatment, was constructed in 1987 and occupies three contiguous levels of Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, totaling 57,000 square feet.


The Bodine Center is home to nine unique multidisciplinary centers, six of which are housed in Bodine. These centers offer a comprehensive approach to cancer treatment where multiple specialties work collaboratively to design the most effective treatment plan for each patient. Within these clinics each person is assigned a cancer care coordinator to assist them throughout the process. The centers include: Thoracic Aerodigestive, Bone and Soft Tissue Sarcoma, Brain, Metastatic Uveal Melanoma, Genitourinary (GU) and Renal Cell.  The GU clinic is the first and longest functioning multidisciplinary clinic in the country. The Senior Adult Oncology, Cutaneous T-Cell Lymphoma, and Liver Tumor centers are located in other locations on the Jefferson campus.
