Sky is the Limit for Deborah Hospital

It’s never a good idea to gamble with your health.  You only have one life.
But gambling FOR your health….that’s another story all together.
It can turn games of chance into distinct financial advantages when the stakes are high.

The Deborah Heart and Lung Center, located on 200 Trenton Road in Browns Mills, NJ, less than 25 miles from historic Bristol on the Delaware, is the only hospital in this region that focuses exclusively on cardiac, vascular, and lung disease using state-of-the-art technology and care. DEBORAH has been named by Philadelphia Magazine as "the place to get the best cardiac care" and named by Becker’s Hospital Review as a 2013 Hospital with a Great Heart Program.
Consumer Reports has also named DEBORAH as the safest hospital in New Jersey, and Inside Jersey Magazine just ranked DEBORAH as the number one hospital in the state in four categories. The federal government’s Hospital Compare site has consistently rated DEBORAH as one of the top hospitals in the country for patient satisfaction by independent research companies, national consumer magazines, and the federal government in its monitoring of healthcare organizations.

In cooperation with Deborah Hospital Foundation, the hospital's major fundraising organization, DEBORAH prides itself on never billing a patient for medical services rendered, boasting that it has never charged a patient or balance billed after insurance.
The hospital is celebrating its 91st Anniversary with a spin of the wheel, a cut of the cards and a roll of the dice with a financial support Benefit on May 18, 2013. The sky is the limit!
This Casino Night will be held on the top floor of the impressive Grundy Commons Industrial Complex on 925 Canal Street in Bristol Borough from 7:00pm- 11:00pm.
The panoramic views are spectacular! A flagpole tops the signature trademark, a four-sided century-old lighted clock tower. President, Frederic H. Baumgarten is benevolently donating the usage of his spacious seventh floor for the Deborah Heart and Lung Center fundraiser evening that includes delectable hors d’oeuvres, beverages, live entertainment, dancing, gambling chips and great prizes, as well as a cash bar. Well over 300 attendees are expected at this event. Tickets are available at the cost of $50.00 per person.
Please make checks payable to DEBORAH Hospital Foundation.

So, go big and then go home, knowing that your donations help DEBORAH continue its humanitarian mission which upholds their founder, the wealthy philanthropist, Dora Moness Shapiro’s motto “There is no price on life”.
When the chips are down, DEBORAH continues to be there to support its patients and their families. After all, nobody should have to roll the dice when it comes to healthcare.
You can’t always count on luck, but you can count on DEBORAH.

Donations are appreciated if you are unable to attend. Please make checks payable to Deborah Hospital Foundation.
Make a Matching Gift contribution! - Your gift can be worth twice or even more than its original amount when a matching gift is secured from your employer or if retired, your former employer on behalf of DEBORAH. Corporate philanthropy not only provides funding for DEBORAH, but also enhances the company’s image in the community.

Or consider an eternal commemoration tribute for those you wish to remember with a personally inscribed plaque. For a $300.00 donation, a 4.5 x 2.5 inch brass plaque with up to four lines is placed in the Deborah Heart and Lung Center’s Chapel for the first year. After the first year, the plaque is moved to the Memorial Hall, located directly across from the Chapel.

Your donation will go a long way on helping to save the lives of our families, friends and neighbors.
Most simply put, no patient has ever received a bill from DEBORAH for the services received!
This mission cannot be accomplished without the generosity and support of friends like you. Thank you.
