Cooper University Health Care’s Kirby Slated to Retire June 1

Camden-based Cooper University Health Care’s executive chairman and CEO Adrienne Kirby will retire June 1, and Dr. Anthony Mazzarelli and Kevin O’Dowd will assume the roles of co-CEOs, at that time.

With approximately 7,000 employees, Cooper says it includes, “South Jersey’s only Level I trauma center (Cooper University Hospital), a leading cancer center (MD Anderson Cancer Center at Cooper), the only Level II pediatric trauma center in the Delaware Valley (Children’s Regional Hospital), one of the largest physicians group in the region, four urgent care centers, and more than 100 outpatient offices throughout South Jersey and Pennsylvania.”

Kirby has been at the helm since 2012, and during that time, Cooper has experienced solid growth and its ongoing transformation into a major academic health system, for example.

Overall, Cooper University Health Care is seen as a key South Jersey component, and part of a broad, ongoing medical and education node of other, unrelated institutions in Camden, including, but not limited to: University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ) and Coriell Institute for Medical Research, for example.
