Why Choose Guthrie and Temple

The Guthrie Cardiac and Vascular Center has a long history of providing quality heart care in northern Pennsylvania and southern New York. The heart failure affiliation with Temple builds on this foundation, providing several benefits to our patients:

  • Having two teams work together offers additional benefit of coordinated care approach
  • Pre- and post-transplant testing and appointments with Guthrie physicians close to home
  • Temple’s list-to-transplant rate is the best in the country
  • Temple physicians have pioneered methods to make donor organs more available and avoid post-transplant complications through Temple’s research program
  • Dual-organ transplant surgical expertise
  • The Temple heart transplant team’s survival rates are above national averages
  • Patients who choose the program may be able to access discounted housing at the Gift of Life Family House, a “home away from home” for transplant patients and families who travel to Philadelphia for care. Gift of Life Family House is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization that is not affiliated with Guthrie or Temple
