NFL Alumni Association
Care Tailored to Former NFL Players
Deborah Heart and Lung Center, a specialty cardiovascular and pulmonary hospital, is excited to partner with the NFL Alumni Association to provide NFLA members and their families access to sophisticated cardiac, vascular and pulmonary care, at its New Jersey hospital campus. The hospital is located in New Jersey, 30 miles east of Philadelphia, PA and 80 miles south of New York City. Deborah Heart and Lung Center 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.
Passionate about helping patients get back on their feet and moving forward, Deborah understands the importance of specialty care for NFLA members.
According to statistics compiled by the NFLA, football retirees over 50 years old:
- Have a 13.5% rate of coronary heart disease
- 46% rate of high blood pressure
- 44% rate of high cholesterol
- Exceed national averages for poor leg circulation and other heart conditions
- Suffer from sleep apnea, asthma, and diabetes
Deborah’s partnership with the NFLA ensures that a carefully selected team of navigators will personally handle each NFLA member’s initial appointment call – and subsequent follow-up. This includes coordination of medical records from other facilities, insurance navigation, scheduling appointments to minimize extra visits to physicians, and making sure all the reports and information are delivered to your primary care or other specialty physician. This personalized concierge service lets patients focus on one thing – their health.
