About this organization
Our mission is to support Temple University and its Health Sciences Center academic programs by providing the clinical environment and service to support the highest quality teaching and training programs for health care students and professionals, and to support the highest quality research programs.
See Schedule OTemple University Hospital was founded in 1892 as "Samaritan Hospital," with the mission of caring for patients with limited incomes and ensuring access to medical care in its surrounding neighborhoods. As the chief academic teaching hospital of the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University, Temple University Hospital (TUH) is a 732-bed non-profit acute care hospital that provides a comprehensive range of medical services to its low-income communities, and a broad spectrum of secondary, tertiary, and quaternary care to patients throughout Southeastern Pennsylvania and beyond. TUH is accredited as an Adult Level 1 Trauma Center by the Pennsylvania Trauma Systems Foundation.In addition to its main campus in North Philadelphia, TUH includes its Episcopal and Northeastern campuses, both of which are in economically distressed areas within three miles of the TUH main and medical school campus. As our chief clinical teaching site, TUH is staffed by over 400 physicians of Temple University Physicians, our faculty-based practice plan, as well as physician scientists from our affiliated Fox Chase Cancer Center and our community-based Temple Physicians, Inc. Temple physicians represent 17 academic departments including subspecialties in emergency medicine, oncology, gastroenterology, obstetrics, gynecology, orthopedics, neurosurgery, neurology, general and specialty surgery and psychiatry. Temple physicians also staff important clinics that address major public health concerns, such as the Comprehensive Neuroaids Center at Temple University, which is dedicated to improving the public health impact of bench-to clinic research associated with HIV-induced neurological diseases and cognitive disorders.Among our recent distinctions is the achievement of Magnet status from the American Nurses Credentialing Center, a prestigious recognition of quality nursing care, community commitment and staff dedication bestowed upon only 8% of U.S. healthcare organizations.Temple's nationally renowned physicians offer state of the art treatment options for patients with complex medical problems, some of whom were previously considered untreatable. Using sophisticated technologies and personalized treatments, Temple physicians are working to alter the course of serious disease. In over a dozen research centers, our faculty is speeding the transformation of fundamental scientific discoveries into practical therapies with the potential to dramatically improve human health.The Fox Chase-Temple Bone Marrow Transplant Program, a formal affiliation between Fox Chase Cancer Center and TUH, is an example of this type of transformative medicine. Last year, the program performed over 133 transplants, and has participated in countless research studies to promote life-saving treatment modalities. In addition to the academic mission, The Temple Center for Population Health, LLC, (TCPH) promotes and supports the population health efforts of TUH and North Philadelphia. We align our efforts with the goals of the United States Department of Health and Human Services' three-part aim of achieving better care for patients, better health for our communities, and lower costs through health care system improvement.The TCPH mission is to attain a sustainable model of health care delivery through clinical and business integration, community engagement, and academic distinction to promote healthy populations. The TCPH includes an extensive network of Patient Centered Medical Homes (24 in the community based Temple Physicians Inc. practice and 3 in the Temple University Physician practices); chronic disease management programs for high risk populations utilizing nurse navigators; an extensive inpatient and outpatient community health worker program, peer coaching, and a central access center for appointment scheduling and acute care follow-up. The TCPH ambulatory performance improvement platform provides the infrastructure on which outpatient clinics can continue to achieve better care, smarter spending and healthier communities. The TCPH collaborates closely with TUH to assure smooth transitions of care, access to community resources and management of value-based purchasing. All Temple physicians, whether faculty or community based, care for patients covered by Medicaid in both the inpatient and outpatient setting. About 85% of Temple University Hospital's inpatients are covered by government programs: 40% by Medicare and 45% by Medicaid. Patients dually eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid comprise about 52% of our Medicare inpatient base. Approximately 41% of our total inpatient cases include a behavioral health diagnosis.TUH serves as a critical access point for vital public health services. Last year we handled more than 130,000 patients in our Emergency Department; 1,800 trauma cases, nearly 12,000 patients in our Psychiatric Crisis Response Center; 2,100 discharges from our inpatient Behavioral Health unit; more than 400 victims of gun and stab violence in our Trauma Unit, the highest number in Pennsylvania; and about 300 patients in our Burn Center. We delivered about 2,500 babies, of whom nearly 90% were covered by Medicaid. TUH is an indispensable provider of health care in the largest city in America without a public hospital. Within our immediate service area, about 45% of individuals live below the federal poverty level. Among Pennsylvania's full-service safety-net providers, Temple University Hospital serves the greatest volume and highest percentage of patients covered by Medicaid.Temple University Hospital's Episcopal Campus provides a recovery oriented behavioral health treatment program, offering a welcoming approach and hope for those whose lives have been affected by mental illness and/or co-occurring disorders. It serves adults, age 18 or older, experiencing severe psychiatric symptoms that markedly impair their capacity to function adequately within the community. Many of its patients are diagnosed with psychiatric plus one or more substance/alcohol disorders. Almost half have one or both diagnosis of hypertension and or diabetes. Many have multiple co-existing medical illnesses. Temple University Hospital takes great pride in the broad array of community services that we provide to our economically challenged neighborhoods and the Southeast Pennsylvania region. Last year we served more than 56,000 people through free community outreach, education and neighborhood building programs. Below is a summary of this year's programs and activities that advance the health of people and the quality of life in our communities:TEMPLE HEALTH FORCE. Health professionals from across Temple University Hospital's departments are engaged in numerous outreach activities with government offices and community-based organizations. These include free health screenings and education on cancer, behavioral health, substance abuse, burn prevention, diabetes care, smoking cessation, LGBTQ health, stroke prevention and other topics.VIOLENCE PREVENTION AND INTERVENTION. Under the leadership of our Department of Surgery, our Trauma Unit conducts a number of programs that address the financial, emotional and social costs of gun violence in Philadelphia. Our "Cradle to Grave" program is a collaborative program with the Juvenile Justice Department and local schools that works with at-risk youth to break the cycle of gun violence. "Fighting Chance" teaches residents in high violence neighborhoods to administer first aid to gunshot victims until first responders arrive. "Safe Bet" provides gun locks to families to reduce accidental shootings. "Turning Point," with a focus on survivors, helps change attitudes toward gun violence and encourages victims to alter their paths.SAFE-T PROGRAM. In addition to the personal education about newborn care and safety, all mothers that deliver at TUH receive a Safe Sleeper kit complete with a sleep-safe baby box, layette items such as fleece and cotton clothing, sheets and blanket, a baby book (provided in English and Spanish), diapers, thermometer, nasal aspirator, baby wash, smoke detectors (provided by the Philadelphia Fire Department) and educational materials and resource referrals. This program has been found to reduce co-sleeping by 25% - a dangerous practice in which parents and babies share the same bed.PHILADELPHIA MOM. Temple University Hospital assists the Philadelphia Department of Health in providing early interventions for healthy newborns. After identification at Temple University Hospital, city social workers make home visitations through the child's 6th birthday to ensure they have access to healthcare and educational resources.
