In just the last year, world-recognized clinicians, researchers, academicians, and administrators have joined the organization in key leadership positions. We have launched advanced clinical endeavors such as our Robotic Surgery Program. Our School of Medicine has opened a strong regional campus at St. Luke’s Hospital & Health Network in Bethlehem. We’ve expanded our clinical sites to include a new outpatient office in Oaks, PA and one soon to open in Fort Washington. And we’ve enhanced the care of our Broad Street campus with investments like that in the new patient-focused Ambulatory Surgery Center. With our new programs, research, and faculty, this is one of the most dynamic periods in Temple Health's history.

There are 18 clinical departments in the School of Medicine, composed of over 499 full-time faculty, 44 part-time faculty, 814 volunteer faculty, and 869 staff.
