Thank You to Our Healthcare Heroes

To every Temple Health staff member who is working tirelessly to care for and support our patients: You are inspiring our city, our patients and each other in the fight against COVID-19.

All of Temple is tremendously proud of our #healthcareheroes — as is the entire greater Philadelphia region and beyond.

For this, we thank you.
