Cooper University Health and Inspira Health Create Cooper and Inspira Neuroscience

Cooper University Health Care and Inspira Health have formed Cooper and Inspira Neuroscience, another partnership between the two health systems. The new venture is expected to improve local access to a comprehensive range of advanced neuroscience care including surgical and nonsurgical services related to the brain, spinal cord, and central nervous system. The arrangement builds on the proven success of Cooper and Inspira Cardiac Care, preparing to go into its sixth year of partnership.

“Cooper and Inspira Neuroscience expands not only the cooperation of two respected health systems, but the access patients across the region will have to some of the best specialists in the world and innovative treatments,” said George E. Norcross III, chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Cooper Health System, Cooper University Hospital, and MD Anderson Cancer Center at Cooper.

“We have proven with Cooper and Inspira Cardiac Care that our teams can successfully collaborate to provide the highest level of cardiac care, and we are confident the same will be true for patients needing the most advanced neurological care,” said Amy Mansue, president and CEO of Inspira Health. “By integrating care between our two health systems, we are enhancing access to highly coordinated comprehensive patient care that includes prevention, diagnosis, treatment and healing for the full spectrum of brain, spine and nerve diseases, conditions, and disorders.”

“This historic partnership will result in the most comprehensive neuroscience program in the region,” said Kevin O’Dowd, JD, co-CEO of Cooper University Health Care. “We are proud to expand upon the multiple partnerships with Inspira and provide greater access to world-renowned experts in neuroscience.”

“We are excited to expand our partnership with Cooper into neuroscience,” said Elizabeth Ryan, Esq., board chair of Inspira Health. “Our work with Cooper fully supports our mission for improving access and elevating the patient experience. This partnership will benefit communities throughout South Jersey and beyond.”

“By combining the resources and expertise at Cooper and Inspira, we are extending this successful model to provide exceptional neurological care to more communities,” said Anthony Mazzarelli, MD, JD, MBE, co-CEO of Cooper University Health Care. “We are confident this venture will save lives and benefit many patients in need of complex neurological care.”

“Neuroscience is a rapidly evolving field of medicine and with the teams at Cooper and Inspira coming together today, with a commitment to providing patients with the latest research and innovation, this region will be a destination for the best evidence-based care,” added Tudor Jovin, MD, medical director, Cooper and Inspira Neuroscience and Chairman and Chief of Neurology at Cooper University Health Care.
