Patient Support for Heart Conditions

It’s common to have questions about your heart condition and how it’s being treated. At Temple, we encourage you to share your questions and concerns with your doctors or nurses, but we understand that sometimes questions may come to mind at unlikely times.

To provide you with easy access to the information you need, when you need it, the Temple Heart & Vascular Institute has created a library of patient resources. Here you will find disease-specific guides, a list of support groups, links to additional medical information and more.

Organ Donation

The need for organ donors has never been greater. Each year, thousands of people die while waiting for a transplant because no suitable donor can be found for them. You have the power to change that.
