Cooper University Health Care and MD Anderson Cancer Center Announce Partnership To Transform Cancer Care in the Region
Cooper University Health Care and MD Anderson Cancer Center signed a letter of intent earlier this summer to form a partnership that will provide cancer patients in the region with access to MD Anderson’s world-renowned treatment protocols, extensive clinical trials, and cutting edge translational research.
Cooper and MD Anderson will open a new state-of-the-art freestanding cancer center on Monday, October 7, on the Cooper Health Sciences Campus in Camden. The $100 million, four-story, 103,050 sq. ft. building is designed to provide patients with one facility that houses all outpatient cancer care services in a multidisciplinary approach to oncology care.
In the new building, physicians from various disciplines (medical oncology, radiation oncology, surgical oncology, gynecologic oncology, and urology) will conduct concurrent, complementary clinical sessions, fostering professional interaction and collaboration. They will also, in parallel, work together to expand the cancer center satellite hub on Cooper’s suburban campus in Voorhees, NJ.
MD Anderson, located in Houston, Texas, has been ranked as the No. 1 cancer hospital according to US News and World Report’s “Best Hospitals” survey nine of the past 11 years.
