In the News: Temple hires Juniper as it explores possible sale

Temple University announced Monday it has retained the services of Juniper Advisory to pursue strategic options for Temple University Health System, which include the possible sale of Fox Chase Cancer Center, neighboring Jeanes Hospital or both.
