Year Established: 1765
The Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania is world-renowned for its clinical and research excellence, forging the way for newer and better ways to diagnose and treat illnesses and disorders. Its long... more and rich history of top-notch patient care began more than two centuries ago with the founding of the nation's first medical school, the University of Pennsylvania.
My husband has been going to U Penn for at least, four years. He uses all testing departments and has five doctors in different departments. Three of those doctors have saved his life from various illnesses... more that the myriad of doctors here in NJ could not help him. Kept him on drugs, drugs, drugs. After his first surgical procedure, he went off some of these drugs and after the third, he was off ten drugs!! Ten drugs he does not take anymore because his medical issues were addressed and addressed correctly! We now go for check ups......check ups!!!!! Great doctors, great nurses, wonderful staff in all departments!! Thank you, U Penn!
