Mission: The Deborah Mission is to provide the necessary facilities, equipment, medical staff and financial resources required to deliver the highest quality inpatient and outpatient services for the diagnosis and treatment of heart, lung and vascular disease within the Deborah service ...
Deborah® is an extraordinary story with beginnings traced to its founding in 1922 as a tuberculosis sanatorium and pulmonary center. According to legend, the therapeutic, pine barren air of rural Burlington County was key to patient recovery. In reality, thousands of TB patients were medically treated and successfully cured by a heroic team of Deborah physicians. The heart of the Deborah Mission has always been compassion.
With the development of antibiotic medications, leading to the eradication of TB, Deborah began expanding its focus to other chest diseases. Dr. Charles Bailey, a pioneer in heart surgery, performed Deborah’s first open heart surgery. The specialty of cardiac diseases was immediately embraced, transforming Deborah into New Jersey’s only cardiac and pulmonary specialty hospital.
Next Generation Healing.
Today, Deborah offers leading edge surgical techniques and non-surgical alternatives for diagnosing and treating all forms of cardiac, vascular and pulmonary diseases in adults, congenital and acquired heart defects in adults and children. Deborah is consistently recognized as a leader in patient care and innovative healing.
New advances in cardiac, pulmonary, and vascular care for patients are almost always available first at Deborah. Among the new procedures and technologies first brought to the region by the hospital are Bronchial Thermoplasty for treating severe asthma; Orbital Atherectomy for clearing calcified blockages in the coronary arteries; Wrist (or radial) catheterizations not only for heart, but for the thoracic cavity and upper legs; new percutaneous intervention abdominal aortic stent graft repair; current construction of the county’s first hybrid OR where Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement and coronary bypass surgery will be done percutaneously; and construction of the area’s first Wound Care Center with a hyperbaric chamber for intense oxygen therapy for quick wound healing. These are just some of the recent advances in the past few months. Deborah’s companion Clinical Research Department keeps the hospital in the loop on the most promising new treatments and technologies.
When it’s your family’s health, don’t settle. Demand Deborah.
