International Patients

At the Temple Heart & Vascular Institute we believe that all patients should have access to exceptional heart and vascular care — regardless of race, religion or country of origin. It’s a philosophy that benefits our own diverse community as well as the many people who travel to Philadelphia for lifesaving cardiovascular care each year.

To help international patients navigate the American healthcare system, Temple Heart & Vascular Institute works with Philadelphia International Medicine (PIM) — a healthcare organization dedicated to bringing Philadelphia-based medical services to the international community. With PIM’s assistance, patients are able to choose the best facility and physician for their individual needs, schedule appointments, transfer records and access other important services such as financial counseling and lodging. Medical interpretation services for international patients who require language assistance are offered through Temple’s Linguistic and Cultural Services Department. In addition, PIM coordinates all third-party coverage and self-pay arrangements.

Our specialists consider it a privilege to care for international guests and take their preferences, needs and values into consideration as part of their care plan.  At all times, care is delivered in a respectful, culturally sensitive environment.

We thank you for your interest in the Temple Heart & Vascular Institute and look forward to meeting your healthcare needs.
