Temple University Hospital
Temple University Hospital (TUH) is a 732-bed tertiary care facility on the Health Sciences Campus of Temple University in Philadelphia. It is the primary clinical teaching site for the Schools of Pharmacy and Medicine and is a short walk from both facilities. Notable services of the hospital include transplant services (including a very active lung transplant center); intensive care units in neurology, neurosurgery, trauma, surgery, respiratory, and burns; and active research programs in multiple areas. The Temple University Health System also contains physician practices, an ambulatory care center in northeastern Philadelphia, the TUH Episcopal campus, Jeanes Hospital, and Fox Chase Cancer Center. Originally opened in 1892 as Samaritan Hospital, Temple University Hospital has developed and evolved into a full-service medical center with facilities on campus for the education of doctors, nurses, dentists, pharmacists and other health professionals. The hospital serves multiple roles, including as a provider of ambulatory care and emergency services for the surrounding community and as a referral center for specialized services. It is a Level-1 Trauma Center.

Temple University School of Pharmacy (TUSP) is adjacent to TUH and offers a 4-year Doctor of Pharmacy degree and several graduate programs.
