Temple University Hospital, St. Luke's form strategic partnership for transplant services

Temple University Hospital, a 722-bed academic medical center in Philadelphia, entered into a strategic partnership Oct. 10 with Bethlehem, Pa.-based St. Luke's University Health Network to streamline coordination of care for select transplant services.

The partnership covers heart, bone marrow, liver and kidney transplants. Patients will be able to attend pre- and post-transplant appointments with Temple or St. Luke's physicians, and conduct related diagnostic testing onsite at St. Luke's. Patients, if approved, will be referred to TUH for transplant surgery.

Under the agreement, Temple transplant physicians will be able to see patients at St. Luke's facilities. Conversely, St. Luke's physicians will be able to take part in clinical training at TUH.
