Temple University Health System (TUHS) and UnitedHealthcare have renewed their network relationship, ensuring Philadelphia-area residents enrolled in UnitedHealthcare employer-sponsored and individual health plans have continued network access to TUHS facilities and physicians.
“We are pleased that UnitedHealthcare recognizes the tremendous progress we have made in North Philadelphia and the region to enhance care, expand our regional quaternary services, and restructure our Health System to adjust effectively to a rapidly changing marketplace,” said Larry R. Kaiser, MD, FACS, president & CEO of TUHS, the Lewis Katz Dean at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University and senior executive vice president for Health Affairs at Temple University. “This renewed relationship enables us to make further investments and opens the door to stronger collaboration between UnitedHealthcare and our health system.”
