Former Nurse Donates to Cooper

A former Cooper University Hospital critical-care nurse recently returned to make a donation to its palliative care fellowship program.

Cathy Young worked at Cooper for 20 years and recently retired as a vice president from The Queens Medical Center in Honolulu, where she now lives.

Young gave $5,000 in honor of Dr. W. Eric Scott of Moorestown, who retired as medical director of Cooper’s intensive care unit.

“He was an outstanding example of clinical excellence and collaboration,” Young said in a statement released by the Cooper Foundation. “He taught us how to look at the whole patient and create an individualized plan that respected the needs and values of the patient and their family.”

The donation will be used to help develop a training fellowship in palliative medicine.
