Who We Are
HeroCare Connect is a program originated by Deborah Heart and Lung Center to best serve our military neighbors and their families. A partnership between Deborah and Cooper University Health Care, HeroCare Connect provides concierge navigation and patient service to improve access to high quality healthcare in a timely manner.
Through HeroCare Connect, Deborah and Cooper combine the collective expertise in over 75 specialties of two nationally-renowned medical centers of excellence, with state-of-the-art hospital facilities and outpatient locations resulting in broad access to quality healthcare services and diagnostic testing throughout Southern New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
We Understand Your Unique Needs
Over a century, Deborah and Cooper have been caring for our country’s military. Your HeroCare Connect team understands the sacrifices that come with military service, and the need for medical providers to provide timely, exceptional care. We recognize that active duty members often need quick medical clearances when they have to deploy for a mission or back home. We work with TRICARE and the VA to put all the pieces together for a timely comprehensive healthcare package.
Thank you for serving us. We’re here to serve you.
