This five-star distinction reflects Temple University Hospital’s commitment to consistently delivering the best care possible placing the organization in the upper echelon of hospitals for Ob-Gyn care nationwide.
This quality award is based on patient outcomes. The Healthgrades analysis revealed variation in care across the nation’s Ob-Gyn programs, making the ability to choose high-quality care more important than ever.
