Is there a way to make it so that if you are linking to a page within the Sharepoint site that when you click on the link/tile in the Hero web part that it will open in a new tab rather than the same window??

I always used a URL shortening service so the link is treated external and a new tab is created. or if you have an internal URL redirect service on a web app you could use that as well. 

You can try the custom spfx promoted links webpart for modern interface by Microsoft Team to open links in new tabs. It doesn't have all features of hero webpart but each item will open in new window.

This was brilliant! Thank you so much

Excellent suggestion. Used bitly (our firm is licensed to use it) and it worked like a charm.
