Cooper University Health Care is committed to providing the highest quality of care for those who put their lives on the line for others. Cooper, with its partner organizations, offers several programs dedicated to keeping members of the military, their families, veterans, and first responders healthy.

 

HeroCare Connect

A joint venture between Cooper University Health Care and Deborah Heart and Lung Center, HeroCare Connect is a personal, one-stop resource that links military families, active duty and retired military, and veterans with specialty care services close to home and on a timely basis.

The unique initiative provides convenient and expedited access to specialty care for military patients stationed at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst and veterans across South Jersey, supplementing the primary, gynecologic, and pediatric care available on base.

Through the HeroCare Connect concierge access center, staff members also follow up with results and reports, coordinate additional testing and care, and communicate with all medical and military professionals involved with each patient. 

Veterans covered by the Veterans Choice Program (VCP) are eligible to take advantage of the personalized, concierge program when a primary care physician recommends diagnostic testing or a visit with a specialist and cannot secure an appointment in a timely manner or geographically convenient location.
