At Deborah, we take our role as one of the nation’s leading and most innovative health facilities very seriously. New advances in cardiac, pulmonary, and vascular care are almost always available first at Deborah. Deborah’s Clinical Research Department – combined with our well-respected teaching program – continuously investigates and brings to Deborah the most promising new treatments and technologies.

Care Tailored to Former Players
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, and a 44% rate of high cholesterol. Former players exceed the national averages for poor leg circulation and other heart conditions. A high percentage of NFLA members also suffer from sleep apnea, asthma and diabetes, other areas that Deborah specializes in.
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 you focus on one thing – your healthcare needs. One call to Deborah and our team will do the rest.
