From humble beginnings in 1887, Cooper University Hospital has grown into an academic medical center committed to world-class patient care, education, and research resulting in a healthier community. This much anticipated 352-page commemorative book is scheduled for publication this September. Cooper 1987—2012 begins as the story of a family affair in Southern New Jersey that soon became a cornerstone in the Camden community.
Today, the Cooper name is synonymous with a full range of health system services, including prevention, primary care, specialty ambulatory services and all levels of inpatient care. Written by accomplished author, Margaret O. Kirk, her fluid writing style brings Cooper’s 125-year history to life with intimacy and vivid details.
