Temple Health has been recognized as the Gift of Life Donor Program’s “Top-Performing Health System” in the 2023 Hospital and Healthsystem Association of Pennsylvania (HAP) Donate Life Pennsylvania Challenge for the second year in a row. This friendly competition brings together regional organ donation organizations and their hospital partners to increase awareness of the need for organ and tissue donors, and to encourage new donor registrations.

Temple University Hospital-Main Campus and TUH-Jeanes Campus each earned “Titanium” status—the top-level hospital designation in the region—for the second consecutive year. TUH-Main also achieved “Top-Performing Hospital” recognition, earning second place.

“Performing hundreds of life-saving transplants each year, and providing exemplary, compassionate care to recipients and the families of donors sets Temple Health apart as a regional and national destination for transplants,” said Michael A. Young, MHA, FACHE, President and CEO of Temple University Health System (TUHS).

“Honors like these independently affirm that our Temple transplant teams are tops – saving lives and helping our patients get back to doing the things they love,” said Abhinav Rastogi, MBA, MIS, President and CEO of TUH and Executive Vice President of TUHS. “They also speak to the compassionate support that our staff in the ICU, ED, and OR provide to families and patients.”
