About the Chestnut Hill Hospital Alliance
On January 1, 2023, an Alliance formed by Temple Health, Redeemer Health and Philadelphia
College of Osteopathic Medicine (PCOM) officially acquired Chestnut Hill Hospital in the Chestnut Hill neighborhood of Philadelphia.
The newly named Temple Health – Chestnut Hill Hospital (TH-CHH) is a 148-bed community-based
inpatient and outpatient facility offering diagnostic and treatment services, including
emergency care, minimally invasive laparoscopic and robotic-assisted surgery, cardiology,
gynecology, oncology, and orthopedics, primary care practices, two Women's Centers,
and an off-site physical therapy center. TH-CHH will remain a freestanding, licensed
acute care hospital under a not-for-profit company owned and controlled by the Alliance
and managed by Temple Health
