Emergency Medicine

Temple Health’s three full-service Emergency Departments provide comprehensive, high-quality care for people with medical emergencies. Located at Temple University Hospital, TUH - Episcopal Campus and Jeanes Hospital, these departments combined treat hundreds of thousands of patients 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. 

Temple University Hospital

The Emergency Department at Temple University Hospital is a Level-1 trauma center, the highest level possible. This means the department is prepared to treat any injury or condition, from common to rare, minor to life-threatening, at any time. Our ED is also one of the only Burn Centers at a Level-1 trauma center, meaning we take care of the most severe burn cases in the region. The emergency department is staffed by nearly 50 board-certified emergency medicine physicians, has several dozen emergency medicine residents and can offer immediate access to every medical specialty within the hospital. Researchers within the department have been awarded multiple grants for neurological critical care and emerging infectious disease. Certified medical interpreters are available to provide translation for patients in Temple’s Emergency Department.

The department also offers a Minor Care Center for the treatment of less serious illnesses and injuries. The center allows patients to be seen and treated quickly and is open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. seven days a week. Certified medical interpreters are available to provide translation for patients in Episcopal’s Emergency Department and Minor Care Center.
