Patient Success Stories

"A Love Story...Meant to Be Continued"

Joe DeFeo, Egg Harbor Township, NJ

This year a suspected flu canceled Joe and Eileen’s anniversary trip to Cape May.

Instead they went to AtlantiCare’s Primary Care Plus, where his new primary care physician heard some alarming heart sounds. He immediately referred Joe to the Heart Institute at AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center.

Tests revealed a serious valve condition that could’ve killed Joe at any moment. Just 8 weeks after Joe’s open-heart surgery, he and Eileen have returned to the place where their love story began.

And they credit AtlantiCare’s seamless integration of primary and specialty care, plus the region’s only 5-star heart surgeons, for making this next chapter possible.
