Temple University Hospital (TUH) is one of the nation’s premier academic medical centers. The 714-bed Philadelphia hospital offers comprehensive inpatient and outpatient services to the surrounding community, and highly specialized tertiary services to the entire region. TUH is the chief clinical training site for the Temple University School of Medicine. Its expert medical staff and sophisticated equipment provide the environment for the highest quality patient care, training, and research. The Temple Trauma Program has been continuously accredited as an Adult Level I Trauma Center since 1987. A large percentage of injured patients who enter the trauma bays suffer from some sort of violent trauma and arrive with a short or no pre-notification time from EMS. This requires a high state of readiness for trauma staff, emergency department staff, radiology, clinical lab and blood bank, operating room, and the intensive care units.
