Ross, MD, Vice Chair, Department of Surgery and Surgical Residency Program Director; Adrienne Kirby, PhD, President & CEO, Cooper University Health Care; and Anthony J. Mazzarelli, MD, Senior Executive Vice President & Chief Physician Executive, Cooper University Health Care.

 

Last month Cooper University Hospital renamed its Trauma Admitting Area in honor of renowned trauma surgeon Steven E. Ross, MD, longtime leader of the Cooper Trauma Center.

 

As part of a surprise ceremony, George E. Norcross, III, Chairman, Cooper University Health Care, unveiled a new sign and commemorative plaque designating the Trauma Admitting Area as the new Steven E. Ross Trauma Admitting Area.

 

“Naming the Trauma Admitting Area in honor of Dr. Ross is a perfect tribute to his contribution to Cooper’s reputation for excellence in trauma,” said Norcross. “His name will forever remain a part of the trauma department that he helped to build.”

 

The ceremony and celebration of Dr. Ross’s achievements were hosted by The Cooper Foundation, which coordinated a secret fundraising mission that honored Ross and raised more than $125,000 to equip the Trauma Admitting Area with new portable X-ray technology.

More than 300 business and community leaders attended the annual meeting of Cooper’s Ferry Partnership earlier this month to learn more about the ongoing progress happening in the City of Camden and opportunities on the horizon.

 

The meeting featured remarks from Camden Mayor Dana Redd as well as Women’s Executive Leadership Panel. Panelists included The Cooper Foundation’s very own Susan Bass Levin, co-chair of Cooper’s Ferry Partnership; Brenda Ross-Dulan, Region President, Southern New Jersey Wells Fargo & Company; Phoebe A. Haddon, Chancellor, Rutgers University-Camden; and Lara Price, Executive Vice President, Business Operations, Philadelphia 76ers. The panel was moderated by Marianne Aleardi, Publisher and Editor-in-Chief, SJ Magazine.

 

Aleardi asked the panelists what they tell companies that may be interested in moving to Camden.

 

“I tell them that there is network of people who are here to help you succeed and the time is now,” Levin said. “Just do it.”
