Temple University Hospital (TUH) is a nationally respected academic medical center that offers high-quality care, the latest technology and skilled staff – all on a safe, easy-to-reach campus.
As the chief clinical training site for the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University, TUH is a teaching hospital where the latest procedures and techniques are pioneered and where students and other physicians come to learn. It is also a robust research center that is advancing the fight against disease, pushing the boundaries of medical science and altering the course of serious disease. All of this means that Temple physicians and staff are at the forefront of medical knowledge.
TUH is many things to many kinds of patients. For some, it’s the hospital they depend on for their routine medical care. For others, it’s a place to receive specialized, lifesaving treatments that can’t be found at most hospitals. Temple’s nationally renowned medical staff offer dozens of powerful new options for patients who, just a few years ago, were considered untreatable. So whether a patient needs a family doctor or a highly trained specialist, chances are good they can find that physician at Temple.
Although surrounded by modern equipment and state-of-the-art facilities, it’s notable that Temple physicians and staff never lose sight of what is most important – patients and their families. This personalized approach to care makes the hospital a true medical home for hundreds of thousands of patients each year.
