An Innovative, Comprehensive Array of Cardiac Services

Senior couple embrace outside

In all aspects of cardiology and heart care, Deborah Heart and Lung Center – an alliance partner of Cleveland Clinic Heart, Vascular and Thoracic Institute – is consistently recognized as a leader in patient care and innovative healing. Deborah has been caring for cardiac patients in New Jersey for nearly 100 years. In fact, we perform more complex cardiac procedures than any other facility in the area and were proud to be the first hospital in the state to perform open heart surgery. That makes a profound statement about the experience of our cardiac professionals and the confidence referring physicians and patients have in our level of service and care.

Ours is a robust cardiovascular program, including the benefits of the latest technology, research and clinical trials. In addition to our clinical expertise, we also provide fellowship opportunities led by certified educators, from interventional cardiology to vascular education.

From remarkably accomplished physicians to talented, skilled nurses, everyone does their job like your life depends on it – because it does.
