Cooper University Health Care Announces a $2 Billion Expansion in Camden

Today, Cooper University Health Care and MD Anderson Cancer Center at Cooper held an event to announce a new $2 billion expansion in Camden.

The investment will add 3 clinical towers with more than 100 private rooms, as well as facilities for emerging technologies and expanded educational and teaching space to help attract medical experts and specialists — and keep them here in South Jersey.

Cooper makes it’s announcement to a full crowd on Monday, September 19.

Cooper’s leadership team — Board Chairman George E. Norcross III, co-CEOs Kevin M. O’Dowd, JD and Anthony J. Mazzarelli, MD, and the Board of Trustees of Cooper University Health Care — were joined by Governor Phil Murphy and former Governor Chris Christie. Both remarked on the strides Camden has made over the years (the city is the safest it’s been in more than 50 years and has made significant strides in improving schools, neighborhoods and employment) and acknowledged Cooper’s contribution to those efforts.

“Camden has seen a dramatic transformation in recent years as many state and local partners have worked together to improve the city, and Cooper has played an integral role in those efforts,” said Governor Murphy at the event.

Camden County’s Kelly Ripa, who has long been a partner and voice for Cooper’s women’s services, joined the event virtually.

Congressman Donald Norcross.

The expansion is a part of Camden’s continued revitalization, in which government agencies, businesses, organizations and citizens came together to improve the city. It builds on more than $3.5 billion invested by private and not-for-profit employers and developers.

“Cooper’s commitment to its home community is a model of how corporate leadership can spark imagination and new opportunities that benefit local residents,” said Congressman Donald Norcross at the event. “Camden’s transformation from being America’s poorest and most dangerous city to one on the rise is a national model of what cities can achieve with commitment, faith, and hard work.”
