Temple University Hospital will commemorate its historic 125th Anniversary with its employees and the community at large throughout the first six months of 2017. In addition to marking the anniversary in conjunction with many annual activities, a series of special initiatives will celebrate this milestone as we recognize the individuals and organizations who have helped Temple carry forward its proud mission.
TUH was founded on the idea that quality healthcare should be available to everyone. Our commitment to caring for the most vulnerable – and educating future generations to carry the tradition forward – remains unchanged. TUH has never been a for-profit enterprise. We did not accept our first paying patient until five years after our founding – and then only to help subsidize care for those in need. Gifts to help support TUH’s operation are absolutely vital as our service-driven mission reaches ever-greater heights.

Donations to TUH support the many world-renowned medical programs that benefit Philadelphia, Southeast Pennsylvania and beyond – and help create new approaches, new technologies, new research and new ways of delivering healthcare. This vital, lifesaving work benefits not just the tens of thousands of patients TUH serves every year, but all patients, everywhere.
