You may have seen it on the news: On January 23, Miki Takamori jumped from the second floor of her West Philadelphia apartment to escape a fire. The leap of bravery saved her life, but not before the fire and jump itself took their toll. Miki suffered significant burns over 30 percent of her body and a spinal cord injury. She is currently receiving care at the Temple University Hospital Burn Unit. A beloved colleague, Miki has worked for the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology since April 1997. She was the first employee of the CPUP OB/GYN practice when it was created here at PAH.
Miki Takamori is shown here with PAH Chair of OB/GYN, Dr. Jack Ludmir.
Prior to working at PAH, Miki worked at HUP in the Family Planning clinic. She is also a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania.
Many employees and staff have inquired about Miki and asked how they can help.
