Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center

The flagship of the Lourdes Health System is one of the largest cardiology service providers in the Delaware Valley. Lourdes, which primarily serves Camden, Burlington and Gloucester Counties, touts itself as the only facility in southern New Jersey to perform kidney, liver and pancreas transplants. The hospital has helped developed surgery innovations, including a "scarless" procedure for weight loss; doctors perform this stomach-shrinking surgery by entering through the belly button instead of making multiple incisions.
