A Welcome Message from Susan Bass Levin

Welcome to the September issue of The Catalyst, the monthly E-Newsletter that keeps you up to date on all the great things happening at The Cooper Foundation and provides news on the exciting advancements in medicine taking place every day at Cooper University Health Care

The Foundation is the philanthropic, community outreach and community development arm of Cooper University Health Care, one of the largest health systems in southern New Jersey. 

Cooper is renowned for signature programs in cardiology, cancer, critical care, pediatrics, trauma, orthopedics and neurosciences and is also home to the only state designated Children’s Hospital in South Jersey—the Children’s Regional Hospital at Cooper. 

Over the last decade, Cooper has transformed its Camden City neighborhood into the Cooper Health Sciences Campus. In October 2013, the new MD Anderson Cancer Center at Cooper, a freestanding cancer center for comprehensive care, opened on the Health Sciences Campus.  

Cooper has also reaffirmed its role as a leader in medical education and research with the opening of Cooper Medical School of Rowan University in 2012, the first four-year allopathic medical school in South Jersey. 

Your donations throughout the year support the life-saving research and treatment offered at Cooper and helps transform the local community.  There are many ways for you to get involved and make a difference in the lives of patients and families. 

And that’s just the beginning. You can join the Cornerstone Society or become a Patron of the Arts. You can participate in toy drives and book drives or support Cooper through a community service project of your own. 

The opportunities are endless, and we are grateful for all levels of support.
