Deborah Hospital FUNdraising Reception at “Time In A Bottle” Event
Save the date! Saturday, July 14, 2018
by Cate Murway

TIME is always of the essence for superior cardiac, pulmonary, and vascular care.
Deborah will soon celebrate a century of being a leader in innovative, compassionate care, named in Modern Healthcare Magazine as one of the nation’s 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals, 2017, by Truven Health Analytics™ an IBM Company.
Deborah Heart and Lung Center is recognized as the leader in heart surgery, and emergency and elective angioplasty procedures in South Jersey. It is located on 200 Trenton Road in Browns Mills, just south of the Fort Dix Military Reservation along Rancocas Creek in the Pine Barrens of south-central New Jersey, less than 25 miles from historic Bristol on the Delaware. 
It is the only specialty hospital in this region that focuses exclusively on cardiac, vascular, and lung disease using state-of-the-art technology and care. 
[*Browns Mills history-The Browns Mills area of Pemberton is named for the large mill tract operated by the Brown family that at one time contained a gristmill, sawmill, mansion house, four tenant houses, and a general store with an accompanying house. In the late 1770’s, Abraham Brown had a spare room that he rented out to those traveling on horseback from Trenton to the Jersey shore.]

DEBORAH was recognized by Philadelphia Magazine as "the place to get the best cardiac care" and has recently been awarded “Excellence in Overall Trial Execution” by Bard Medical and Lutonix at their Levant 2 Registry Meeting. In 2018, 2016 Deborah received the “Outstanding Patient Experience Award™’, a great testament to Deborah’s standards of excellence.Their team has always been 100% committed to getting it right for the people they serve. 

Dr. Charles Philamore Bailey [1910-1993], an innovative Philadelphia heart surgeon, performed Deborah’s first on-site open heart surgery in 1958. He was the director of cardiovascular surgery at Deborah from 1956 to 1961. Dr. Bailey's methods were the focus of the March 25, 1957 “Time” magazine article and his writings include the book "Surgery of the Heart," published in 1955. 

This pioneer thoracic surgeon, the first U.S. physician to repair a hole in the wall between the two sides of the heart, could well be considered as the father of modern heart surgery.

Trust the Experts. Demand DEBORAH.
The Deborah Heart and Lung Center also boasts bronchial thermoplasty, approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as a treatment for severe asthma sufferers; Robotic Ablation, the safer, more effective ablation for patients with heart rhythm disorders [under the Raffaele Corbisiero–Pedram Kazemian Team, Deborah is a Top 10 Robotic Ablation Center]; Orbital Atherectomy to clear calcified blockages in the coronary arteries, and it proudly hosts the Deborah Specialty Physicians’ Diabetes Center on its campus.
Today Deborah is a world-renowned center for cardiac and pulmonary care and its physicians have traveled around the world to perform surgery on children and teach their skills to colleagues. 
Everything they do is made possible by their friends and supporters who make Deborah the wonderful place that it has been for nearly 100 years, keeping Deborah’s mission alive, raising and saving not just funds, but awareness as well.

The heart of the Deborah Mission has always been compassion.
No one should be forced to make life-altering medical decisions based on their personal finance.
DEBORAH prides itself on never billing a patient for medical services rendered, boasting that it has never charged a patient for balance billed after insurance. No co-pay, no deductibles, no balance bill! 
This philosophy began at its inception and its extraordinary story with beginnings traced to its founding as a tuberculosis sanatorium and pulmonary center. Wealthy philanthropist socialite Dora Moness Shapiro [1880-1952] from the Morris Park West section of NY, the wife of Solomon, a successful garment manufacturer, established Deborah. It was renamed Deborah Heart and Lung Center in 1973. She purchased the first licensed existing 32-bed sanitarium and arranged for its previous owner, Dr. Marcus W. Newcomb, an advocate of treating persons suffering from tuberculosis regardless of their ability to pay, to stay on as consulting physician. Her motto was "There is no price tag on life!" 

Dora Shapiro presided over the hospital for its first decade; then remained active in its fund-raising.
From the beginning, Deborah benefitted from many luminaries, including the 1921 Nobel Prize winner, Albert Einstein [1879-1955], who ensured that needy patients not be charged for their care.
It doesn’t take a genius to know that everyone can benefit when one invests in Deborah.
