Offering Heart Transplants to More Heart Failure Patients

Temple Health's Heart Transplant Program is offering more heart failure patients a chance at life through expanded evaluation criteria and innovative methods to accept more donor hearts. These efforts have resulted in the best outcomes in the Philadelphia area, and one of the fastest list-to-transplant rates in the country. Drs. Eman Hamad and Yoshiya Toyoda are leading Temple's efforts to help these patients live longer, better lives.
