December 2, 2012. Philadelphia. The St. George Greek Orthodox community in Philadelphia welcomed John Kastanis, President and CEO of Temple University Hospital to the Greek community this past Sunday. Kastanis was honored with a plaque that he received from Father Costa and the church members following liturgy.

Kostanis relocated to Philadelphia last year to take on the challenges of an evolving healthcare system. Prior to joining Temple, Kastanis was President and CEO of the Hospital for Joint Diseases, an affiliate of NYU Medical Center in New York, NY.

The following day, members of the St. George parish visited Temple University hospital where they handed out gift packages to patients and met with Kastanis again.
